Subject: O: redir -- Redirect TCP connections
Date: Wed, 23 Mar 2011 02:05:30 -0400
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the redir package.  Better-featured, more
well-maintained software exists.  socat does everything i have ever
wanted out of redir (and much more).  redir's upstream hasn't issued a
new version in over 5 years.

The package description is:
 It can run under inetd or stand alone (in which case it handles
 multiple connections).  It is 8 bit clean, not limited to line
 mode, is small and light. Supports transparency, FTP redirects, http
 proxying, and bandwidth limiting.
 .
 redir is all you need to redirect traffic across firewalls authenticate
 based on an IP address etc. No need for the firewall toolkit. The
 functionality of inetd/tcpd and "redir" will allow you to do everything
 you need without screwy telnet/ftp etc gateways. (I assume you are running
 IP Masquerading of course.)
