Layer-3/4 Source and Destination NAT/PAT (network/port
address translation) is _not_ the same as layer-2 bridging or
layer-3 routing between networks and inspecting the packets
then. I think he's looking for layer-2 bridging or layer-3
routing, not SNAT/DNAT.
IPCop does SNAT/DNAT, and can translate multiple public IPs
into private ones -- LAN, 2nd LAN (e.g., WLAN), DMZ, etc...
as well. 1:1 (NAT-only), 1:Many, Many:1. Not the same as
inspecting frames/packets as they pass through a true layer-2
bridge, or a layer-3 router.

As with IPCop.
