I've looked at samba code, and understand, that forwarding of pakcets
need RPC and IPC$ code, and it is huge amount of it.

  I'll look at this.

  I use docs from this.
AB> Samba's 2 internal versions
  Code of samba is too general and, thus, too hard to read :(

  Samba-grabbed, I know. But I want BSD, so I wrote this by hands,
  using info from squid-realted doc.

 I see. I implement hardcoded version from squid, and I have options
 to check/don't check flags on parsing (more or less strict packet
 checker), check only LanMan, only NT or both passwords (really --
 hashes). It work for simple task -- allow to send SMTP and receive
 POP3 mail for my roaming users with Outlook. I could not enable plain
 POP and LOGIN/PLAIN authorization, but APOP and CRMA-MD5 supported
 only by The Bat! mailer under Windows (may be Edudora too, but in
 Russia Eudora is rarely used). The Bat! is my favorite, but
 many other uses Outlook/Outlook Express.
