The ip-masq-log patch can be used on a masquerading firewall (NAT) to keep a log of all the outgoing masqueraded TCP connections. It's even possible to log the name of the user who has opened the connection. This can be a useful security tool for many small networks that are hidden by a masquerading box if users cannot be totally trusted.
