    The utility provides a Network Address Translation facility for use with divert(4) sockets under Fx .

    (If you need NAT on a PPP link, ppp(8) provides the -nat option that gives most of the functionality, and uses the same libalias(3) library.)

    The utility normally runs in the background as a daemon. It is passed raw IP packets as they travel into and out of the machine, and will possibly change these before re-injecting them back into the IP packet stream.

    It changes all packets destined for another host so that their source IP address is that of the current machine. For each packet changed in this manner, an internal table entry is created to record this fact. The source port number is also changed to indicate the table entry applying to the packet. Packets that are received with a target IP of the current host are checked against this internal table. If an entry is found, it is used to determine the correct target IP address and port to place in the packet.

    The following command line options are available:

    -log | l
    Log various aliasing statistics and information to the file /var/log/alias.log This file is truncated each time is started.
    -deny_incoming | d
    Do not pass incoming packets that have no entry in the internal translation table.

    If this option is not used, then such a packet will be altered using the rules in -target_address below, and the entry will be made in the internal translation table.

    Log denied incoming packets via syslog(3) (see also -log_facility )
    -log_facility facility_name
    Use specified log facility when logging information via syslog(3). Argument facility_name is one of the keywords specified in syslog.conf5.
    -use_sockets | s
    Allocate a socket(2) in order to establish an FTP data or IRC DCC send connection. This option uses more system resources, but guarantees successful connections when port numbers conflict.
    -same_ports | m
    Try to keep the same port number when altering outgoing packets. With this option, protocols such as RPC will have a better chance of working. If it is not possible to maintain the port number, it will be silently changed as per normal.
    -verbose | v
    Do not call daemon(3) on startup. Instead, stay attached to the controlling terminal and display all packet alterations to the standard output. This option should only be used for debugging purposes.
    -unregistered_only | u
    Only alter outgoing packets with an unregistered source address. According to RFC 1918, unregistered source addresses are, and
    -redirect_port proto targetIP : targetPORT [- targetPORT
    ] [aliasIP : ] aliasPORT [- aliasPORT
    ] [remoteIP [: remotePORT [- remotePORT ] ] ]
    Redirect incoming connections arriving to given port(s) to another host and port(s). Argument proto is either tcp or udp targetIP is the desired target IP address, targetPORT is the desired target port number or range, aliasPORT is the requested port number or range, and aliasIP is the aliasing address. Arguments remoteIP and remotePORT can be used to specify the connection more accurately if necessary. If remotePORT is not specified, it is assumed to be all ports.

    Arguments targetIP , aliasIP and remoteIP can be given as IP addresses or as hostnames. The targetPORT , aliasPORT and remotePORT ranges need not be the same numerically, but must have the same size. When targetPORT , aliasPORT or remotePORT specifies a singular value (not a range), it can be given as a service name that is searched for in the services(5) database.

    For example, the argument

    tcp inside1:telnet 6666

    means that incoming TCP packets destined for port 6666 on this machine will be sent to the telnet port on the inside1 machine.

    tcp inside2:2300-2399 3300-3399

    will redirect incoming connections on ports 3300-3399 to host inside2, ports 2300-2399. The mapping is 1:1 meaning port 3300 maps to 2300, 3301 maps to 2301, etc.

    -redirect_proto proto localIP [publicIP [remoteIP ]
    ] Redirect incoming IP packets of protocol proto (see protocols(5)) destined for publicIP address to a localIP address and vice versa.

    If publicIP is not specified, then the default aliasing address is used. If remoteIP is specified, then only packets coming from/to remoteIP will match the rule.

    -redirect_address localIP publicIP
    Redirect traffic for public IP address to a machine on the local network. This function is known as static NAT Normally static NAT is useful if your ISP has allocated a small block of IP addresses to you, but it can even be used in the case of single address:


    The above command would redirect all incoming traffic to machine

    If several address aliases specify the same public address as follows

    redirect_address public_addr
    redirect_address public_addr
    redirect_address public_addr

    the incoming traffic will be directed to the last translated local address (, but outgoing traffic from the first two addresses will still be aliased to appear from the specified public_addr

    -redirect_port proto targetIP : targetPORT [, targetIP : targetPORT [, ... ] ]
    [aliasIP : ] aliasPORT
    [remoteIP [: remotePORT ] ]
    -redirect_address localIP [, localIP [, ... ] ] publicIP
    These forms of -redirect_port and -redirect_address are used to transparently offload network load on a single server and distribute the load across a pool of servers. This function is known as LSNAT (RFC 2391). For example, the argument

    tcp www1:http,www2:http,www3:http www:http

    means that incoming HTTP requests for host www will be transparently redirected to one of the www1, www2 or www3, where a host is selected simply on a round-robin basis, without regard to load on the net.

    If the -n or -interface option is used, will monitor the routing socket for alterations to the interface passed. If the interface's IP address is changed, will dynamically alter its concept of the alias address.
    -in_port | i port
    Read from and write to divert(4) port port treating all packets as ``incoming''
    -out_port | o port
    Read from and write to divert(4) port port treating all packets as ``outgoing''
    -port | p port
    Read from and write to divert(4) port port distinguishing packets as ``incoming'' or ``outgoing'' using the rules specified in divert(4). If port is not numeric, it is searched for in the services(5) database. If this option is not specified, the divert port named natd will be used as a default.
    -alias_address | a address
    Use address as the aliasing address. Either this or the -interface option must be used (but not both), if the -proxy_only option is not specified. The specified address is usually the address assigned to the ``public'' network interface.

    All data passing out will be rewritten with a source address equal to address All data coming in will be checked to see if it matches any already-aliased outgoing connection. If it does, the packet is altered accordingly. If not, all -redirect_port -redirect_proto and -redirect_address assignments are checked and actioned. If no other action can be made and if -deny_incoming is not specified, the packet is delivered to the local machine using the rules specified in -target_address option below.

    -t | target_address address
    Set the target address. When an incoming packet not associated with any pre-existing link arrives at the host machine, it will be sent to the specified address

    The target address may be set to in which case all new incoming packets go to the alias address set by -alias_address or -interface

    If this option is not used, or called with the argument then all new incoming packets go to the address specified in the packet. This allows external machines to talk directly to internal machines if they can route packets to the machine in question.

    -interface | n interface
    Use interface to determine the aliasing address. If there is a possibility that the IP address associated with interface may change, the -dynamic option should also be used. If this option is not specified, the -alias_address option must be used.

    The specified interface is usually the ``public'' (or ``external'' network interface.

    -config | f file
    Read configuration from file A file should contain a list of options, one per line, in the same form as the long form of the above command line options. For example, the line


    would specify an alias address of Options that do not take an argument are specified with an argument of yes or no in the configuration file. For example, the line

    log yes

    is synonymous with -log

    Options can be divided to several sections. Each section applies to own instance. This ability allows to configure one process for several NAT instances. The first instance that always exists is a "default" instance. Each another instance should begin with

    instance instance_name

    At the next should be placed a configuration option. Example:

    # default instance
    port 8668

    # second instance
    instance dsl1
    port 8888

    Trailing spaces and empty lines are ignored. A `#' sign will mark the rest of the line as a comment.

    -instance instancename
    This option switches command line options processing to configure instance instancename (creating it if necessary) till the next -instance option or end of command line. It is easier to set up multiple instances in the configuration file specified with the -config option rather than on a command line.
    -globalport port
    Read from and write to divert(4) port port treating all packets as ``outgoing'' This option is intended to be used with multiple instances: packets received on this port are checked against internal translation tables of every configured instance. If an entry is found, packet is aliased according to that entry. In no entry was found in any of the instances, packet is passed unchanged, and no new entry will be created. See the section Sx MULTIPLE INSTANCES for more details.
    This option makes reverse the way it handles ``incoming'' and ``outgoing'' packets, allowing it to operate on the ``internal'' network interface rather than the ``external'' one.

    This can be useful in some transparent proxying situations when outgoing traffic is redirected to the local machine and is running on the internal interface (it usually runs on the external interface).

    Force to perform transparent proxying only. Normal address translation is not performed.
    -proxy_rule [type encode_ip_hdr | encode_tcp_stream ] port xxxx server a.b.c.d:yyyy
    Enable transparent proxying. Outgoing TCP packets with the given port going through this host to any other host are redirected to the given server and port. Optionally, the original target address can be encoded into the packet. Use encode_ip_hdr to put this information into the IP option field or encode_tcp_stream to inject the data into the beginning of the TCP stream.
    -punch_fw basenumber : count
    This option directs to ``punch holes'' in an ipfirewall(4) based firewall for FTP/IRC DCC connections. This is done dynamically by installing temporary firewall rules which allow a particular connection (and only that connection) to go through the firewall. The rules are removed once the corresponding connection terminates.

    A maximum of count rules starting from the rule number basenumber will be used for punching firewall holes. The range will be cleared for all rules on startup. This option has no effect when the kernel is in security level 3, see init(8) for more information.

    -skinny_port port
    This option allows you to specify the TCP port used for the Skinny Station protocol. Skinny is used by Cisco IP phones to communicate with Cisco Call Managers to set up voice over IP calls. By default, Skinny aliasing is not performed. The typical port value for Skinny is 2000.
    Log when a packet cannot be re-injected because an ipfw(8) rule blocks it. This is the default with -verbose
    -pid_file | P file
    Specify an alternate file in which to store the process ID. The default is /var/run/



    The following steps are necessary before attempting to run :

    1. Build a custom kernel with the following options:
      options IPFIREWALL
      options IPDIVERT

      Refer to the handbook for detailed instructions on building a custom kernel.

    2. Ensure that your machine is acting as a gateway. This can be done by specifying the line


      in the /etc/rc.conf file or using the command

      "sysctl net.inet.ip.forwarding=1"

    3. If you use the -interface option, make sure that your interface is already configured. If, for example, you wish to specify `tun0' as your interface and you are using ppp(8) on that interface, you must make sure that you start ppp prior to starting .

    Running is fairly straight forward. The line

    natd -interface ed0

    should suffice in most cases (substituting the correct interface name). Please check rc.conf5 on how to configure it to be started automatically during boot. Once is running, you must ensure that traffic is diverted to :

    1. You will need to adjust the /etc/rc.firewall script to taste. If you are not interested in having a firewall, the following lines will do:
      /sbin/ipfw -f flush
      /sbin/ipfw add divert natd all from any to any via ed0
      /sbin/ipfw add pass all from any to any

      The second line depends on your interface (change `ed0' as appropriate).

      You should be aware of the fact that, with these firewall settings, everyone on your local network can fake his source-address using your host as gateway. If there are other hosts on your local network, you are strongly encouraged to create firewall rules that only allow traffic to and from trusted hosts.

      If you specify real firewall rules, it is best to specify line 2 at the start of the script so that sees all packets before they are dropped by the firewall.

      After translation by , packets re-enter the firewall at the rule number following the rule number that caused the diversion (not the next rule if there are several at the same number).

    2. Enable your firewall by setting


      in /etc/rc.conf This tells the system startup scripts to run the /etc/rc.firewall script. If you do not wish to reboot now, just run this by hand from the console. NEVER run this from a remote session unless you put it into the background. If you do, you will lock yourself out after the flush takes place, and execution of /etc/rc.firewall will stop at this point - blocking all accesses permanently. Running the script in the background should be enough to prevent this disaster.



    It is not so uncommon to have a need of aliasing to several external IP addresses. While this traditionally was achieved by running several processes with independent configurations, can have multiple aliasing instances in a single process, also allowing them to be not so independent of each other. For example, let us see a common task of load balancing two channels to different providers on a machine with two external interfaces `sis0' (with IP and `sis2' (with IP
              net ------------------ sis0
    (router)                (
                                      sis1 -------------------
              net ------------------ sis2
    (router)                (

    Default route is out via `sis0'

    Interior machine ( is accessible on TCP port 122 through both exterior IPs, and outgoing connections choose a path randomly between `sis0' and `sis2'

    The way this works is that natd.conf builds two instances of the aliasing engine.

    In addition to these instances' private divert(4) sockets, a third socket called the ``globalport'' is created; packets sent to via this one will be matched against all instances and translated if an existing entry is found, and unchanged if no entry is found. The following lines are placed into /etc/natd.conf

    instance default
    interface sis0
    port 1000
    redirect_port tcp 122
    instance sis2
    interface sis2
    port 2000
    redirect_port tcp 122
    globalport 3000

    And the following ipfw(8) rules are used:

    ipfw -f flush
    ipfw add      allow ip from any to any via sis1
    ipfw add      skipto 1000 ip from any to any in via sis0
    ipfw add      skipto 2000 ip from any to any out via sis0
    ipfw add      skipto 3000 ip from any to any in via sis2
    ipfw add      skipto 4000 ip from any to any out via sis2
    ipfw add 1000 count ip from any to any
    ipfw add      divert 1000 ip from any to any
    ipfw add      allow ip from any to any
    ipfw add 2000 count ip from any to any
    ipfw add      divert 3000 ip from any to any
    ipfw add      allow ip from to any
    ipfw add      skipto 5000 ip from to any
    ipfw add      prob .5 skipto 4000 ip from any to any
    ipfw add      divert 1000 ip from any to any
    ipfw add      allow ip from any to any
    ipfw add 3000 count ip from any to any
    ipfw add      divert 2000 ip from any to any
    ipfw add      allow ip from any to any
    ipfw add 4000 count ip from any to any
    ipfw add      divert 2000 ip from any to any
    ipfw add 5000 fwd ip from to not
    ipfw add      allow ip from any to any

    Here the packet from internal network to Internet goes out via `sis0' (rule number 2000) and gets catched by the globalport socket (3000). After that, either a match is found in a translation table of one of the two instances, or the packet is passed to one of the two other divert(4) ports (1000 or 2000), with equal probability. This ensures that load balancing is done on a per-flow basis (i.e., packets from a single TCP connection always flow through the same interface). Translated packets with source IP of a non-default interface (`sis2' ) are forwarded to the appropriate router on that interface.
