Hmm. Looking for information on what pasv means, I find that it appears that
linux's ip_masq can be set to eaves drop on ftp connections to allow normal
mode to work. I bet that NetBSD can do the same thing, whenever I get it
set up for NAT. I wonder how I set Mozilla and IE to pasv mode in the mean
