Thanks for replying.

That is what I read and I was looking for an alternative to that. Is there
other solution? Or this is the best available solution already?

Well, if you can suggest how the solution could be made better, I or
others can maybe suggest how to implement it.

The only other thing i can thing of is have port mapper interface with
iptables in a plug and play type firewall way (or however Windows
refers to it)
