Going all NATural

We’ve all seen the NAT tab on Server Admin, and been very impressed that we can do IP forwarding, or IP forwarding and NAT – but where to after that? Enter The NATural, an all new GUI tool that allows you to manage those NAT settings.

Most beautifully, this tool allows administration of NAT settings without modifying or replacing any of the default Apple software, and it also has a “demo” mode where it will recognize if you’ve installed to software on an OS X Client machine which will let you take a look at all the settings without modifying anything on your local machine.

So, thanks to Jamie Griffin of GDog Software for getting frustrated with natd, and sharing The NATural with the rest of us.
