i think i'm the other person Adam refered to in his posting. my problem is
actually much simpler, and easily corrected now that i understand what is
going on. the gist of it from my point of view is that i had a firewall
answering at x.x.x.193 in x.x.x.192/27, and i had (somewhat arbitrarily)
decided to translate outbound nat-ed connections as appearing at x.x.x.211.
everything else worked, but not ftp-proxy. now that i understand this issue
with respect to ftp-proxy, i'll just change the nat rule to use x.x.x.193
and be happy.
my only suggestion is a documentation change -- probably somewhere in the
documentation for ftp-proxy and perhaps in section 6 of the OpenBSD FAQ,
this issue ought to be mentioned.
