This the text of paragraph 10:

  IP filtering firewall is designed to control the flow of packets based
   the source, destination, port and packet type. In muLinux (version >
   2.7, setup ipfwadm) You can enable IP masquerade feature and IP
   generic protection on a Linux server, allowing connected computers
   (running TCP/IP, but without registered Internet address) to connect
   to the Internet through your muLinux box.

Masqueranding is a kind of IP manipulation: it fall under ipfwadm


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
