HELP: IP Masquerading and modules

I have IP masquerading working successfully under Slackware (kernel
2.0.33). On my Mac, I can use RealPlayer 5.0 just fine when my Linux
box is on the internet. I can use Fetch! (an FTP client on Mac) just
fine to connect to FTP sites on the internet, but the ip_masq_ftp.o
file must be called in /etc/rc.d/rc.local. If it is commented out, FTP
from my Mac will not work. Okay, I understand that some modules need
to be loaded for a service to work.

Question: Why does RealPlayer work? I can't find any file that
mentions the ip_masq_raudio.o file, except the one in
/lib/modules/2.0.33/modules_dep or something like that, but
ip_masq_ftp.o is mentioned in that one, too.

Also, when I do lsmod, I don't see ip_masq_raudio.o being listed when
my Mac is using RealPlayer, unless kerneld is loaded at bootup.

I don't know what kerneld has to do with all this, but whether or not
kerneld is loaded in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules, the FTP module needs to be
called in rc.local for Fetch! to work.

Is this an issue with the current implementation of IP Masquerading
under Linux, the FTP client on my Mac, RealPlayer 5.0 for Mac, or a
bit of everything?

If anyone can provide me with some hints on all this, I will glady
appreciate it! Thanks!

1. IP for masqueraded net other than masquerading host IP


I have a linux box which should work as router for two subnets to the internet.
One subnet has valid IP addresses but the other subnet with private IPs has to be masqueraded. Is it possible to masquerade this subnet with an IP address from the other subnet or with the IP of the router port which is connected to the valid subnet and not with the IP address of the router port which is connected to the internet which is the default?
