      We are using RTEMS with networking support for a router application.
We are currently using natd for NAT support. We are not getting 
acceptable throughput  with this implemetation because of additional 
overhead involved with natd.Our memory band width limit and DMA 
complexity are compunding the problem.
I would like to know your opinion on  available NAT implementaions. 
Which implementation gives better performance and more application level 
gateway support.

       What feature set are you planning for the next BSD stack upgrade? 
May I ask you about the time frame for the release? :)
Thanks in advance.
