 restart natd remotely?
Author: cappy

Hello everyone! I'm wondering if anyone could help me. I've been trying to figure this one out for the longest time: restarted natd remotely.

Sometimes I change natd's config file (e.g., add new port redirections) and I'm logged in remotely (i.e., via ssh). I've tried killall -1 natd, however that doesn't cause natd to reread it's config file, it just restarts the daemon only. I've to start a new session of natd then kill the old session, but that just hangs the connection. I've read the archives of the freebsd-questions mailing list, but they lack any specifics. Can anyone provide step-by-steps to get natd to reread it's config file remotely?

Much thanx in advance.
