   The newest version of tproxy has been released. Version numbering has 
changed, so instead of #24 it's called version 0.24. Changes include:

   * A new procfs interface for the tproxy hash table is included, it can 
be used to list existing entries
   * Removed own source port allocation algorithm, local source port 
numbers are now allocated by the NAT subsystem (fixes: "error applying NAT 

   A bug has been found in previous releases, which causes "socket already 
assigned" errors. However, fixing the problem is not trivial, so a 
workaround is included in inet_tcp_autobind_fix.diff. While this patch 
fixes the problem, and we've found no side effects of applying, it's 
somewhat experimental.

   The patch has been tested on 2.4.22, which has some problems in the 
Netfilter core, so please apply 63_getorigdst-tuple-zero.patch. This has 
been included in the tproxy patch tarball to make life easier: you don't 
have to check it out from the Netfilter CVS tree.

   The patch is available at
