I don't get ipfw(1) manual's:

ipfw add nat 123 all from any to any

What typical user wants is to add NAT (aka "Leeenux masquerade") for
2nd/3rd computer. We show complex cases of NAT usage in EXAMPLES section,
but don't show the simple, most popular case:

ipfw nat 123 config ip ADDR log
ipfw add 20 nat 123 ip from any to ADDR
ipfw add 10 nat 123 ip from to any

I think this (or similar) should be in a man page ready for copy&paste
with no thinking. I had to Google around:


How-To-Repeat: man ipfw
