Enhancements

Module firewall: redirecting to internal hosts

The inputing rules have been enhanced so one can redirect form traffic and send it to some hosts. It is using the ip_masq_mfw kernel module. A new field was added to the form. Before, one could only intercept traffic and redirect it to some local service on the firewall. Now, the extra field allows you to redirect to another machine.

This should simplify the old "redir" setup since you do everything from the same dialog. It allows arbitrary traffic redirection, not just TCP. Check it out. Not tested much though.
