No, IP masquerading hasn't been ported to cygwin32 yet and if MS
doesn't integrate cygwin32 into the kernel it won't get ported in the
future. That's just because cygwin32 is only a DLL on top of the OS
while masquerading needs low level support from the OS. So you won't
get around either waiting for NT 5.0 or buying some commercial
solution. :-|
