look, I think you got me wrong ? I'm no lokking to try and spoof my IP, and I know about all that thx.

I am talking in the capacity of the kernel in The IP protocol. That is, masquerading, and redirect (proxying....).

Has anyone here ever copmpiled a kernel??

using ipchains for example to redirect or proxy then the kernel must havecertain options....(chosen when compiling it)

do u understand me? (and my question)
