IP Masquerading with Linux
IP masquerading is an interesting technology, but more importantly, it serves a very useful function for many Internet environments. It works well for common services such as telnet, http, and ftp, but it does not support everything. ICMP messages, talk, remote X applications, and rlogin do not work with masquerading. Fortunately, the software is still in its Alpha versions, and more development is being pursued.

He enjoys working with Linux but considers himself a latecomer because he started out at kernel version 1.1.18. As far as computers go, he's not sure if he has more fun debugging TCP/IP problems or shooting DOS machines
