Have a question about The NATural? Need an alternative?

The NATural is a GUI tool to manage the NAT settings of Mac OS X Server. The NATural allows you to configure many of the settings that Server Admin will pass to natd.

Apple's Server Admin software provides only a limited interface to control NAT routing functions. The underlying process, natd, can accept many more arguments. Although Server Admin does not provide an interface to these functions, it does respect all settings that natd supports. The NATural allows you to easily configure these settings.

The NATural was developed in response to my own need to configure NAT routing as an administrator of several Mac OS X Server systems.

What's New

Version 1.0b2:

  • port
