I have kernel source that has new features added to ip_masquerade for the
1.2.n kernel series. The source was created by a programmer who first
patched a 1.2.4 kernel with masquerade, then added the new features
including: FTP redirection (from 1.3.n), Real-Audio (from SLiRP) and
StreamWorks support (new code). He didn't produce a replacement patch and
is too busy now to do so.
The programmer asked me to offer a new patch to the public but I don't know
how to produce patches, and have no-one to turn to.
Can someone take the files that have been changed and the original masq
patch and produce a new patch? I am no code guru and am not qualified to
do this myself.
I will only release the changed files to ONE person to produce this
1.2.n.masq_plus patch. I don't want a couple dozen different patches
floating about since this would cause too much confusion providing
support and documentation.
If you have experience in producing kernel patches for Linux, and have
the time and willingness to do this promptly, please reply.
Note: During my testing of the modified code, the FTP worked fine,
Real-Audio worked for a while then lost connection, and I never tested
the StreamWorks. Please consider this VERY alpha code.
Also: Please don't email asking for the changed code if you are not
planning on creating the patch. I expect to have a finished patch available
for the public ASAP (hopefully within a week or so).
