I have a question to you clever coding techies out there :-)
quote from Changelog 0.14
This new kernel enhances set_ipv4root a bit. This is not the multi-ip
support yet though. This kernel allows application relying on broadcast
to work in vservers. The trick is to assigned both an IP number and a
broadcast address to a vserver. The socket handling for UDP was modified
a little (one line in net/ipv4/udp.c) so an incoming packet is processed
if it matched the vserver IP or the vserver broadcast address.
How much would have to be added to add a recognition of a certain port
on the "root" servers ip-address - so I f.ex. could run my proftpd under
a vserver (with a 10.x.x.x IP) and then assign port 21 on the root
server(which would be the only one with a RFC1918 -valid IP) to this
vserver (so that packages were forwarded)?
I guess we also need affiliated connections - but wouldn't an iptables
that kept state handle that?
Would this be a good way of doing it, at all?
