Yeah, it WorksForMe® (mostly) too.

The only problem I have is ftp (or any other protocol) that requires a
control port. Ftp in passive mode is fine however.

I did consider that maybe it had something to do with my rather
elaborate setup, but the fact that it all works fine under WinUAE
confuses the issue.


Fedora Core 1 Linux
iptables firewall (on or off)
100TX NIC -> Switch -> ISDN Router -> BT HomeHighway ISDN

The Router is configured to NAT all incoming requests to the PC, and yes
I checked, the IPs do match.

Like I said, this works on WinUAE and I don't have any other issues with
networking under Linux either, so ... ?

It'd be great if you picked up development of bsdsocket again.
