SubjectRe: transparent-proxy
Date

well, I think I have an idea of how to use the transparent proxy:
o if you have setup your firewall in a way, that no client
from outside can initiate connections to your firewall.
o and you are using ftp-clients that can not use a proxy (say, it's
simply not configurable) and are unable to use the "PASV" command.

... then there's no way to get a data connection.

for this situation, one could write a ftp-proxy which does protocol-
conversion, turning PORT into PASV commands.

does such a proxy exist, or should it be written?
