Description

See the attached.

Unfortunately, tor-fw-helper is not being distributed in the TBB. I'm trying to encourage that in #5213. It seems like the right place to compile it.

Also, waiting on #9030.

I modified your patch to add new --port-forwarding, --port-forwarding-helper, and --port-forwarding-external options.

If ya'll are looking for more things to do (ha), you might look at the underlying code for tor-fw-helper. I think it relies on some crappy nat / upmp libraries that haven't been updated in years and likely have code security problems. (I also, alas, think it's the best we've got until somebody writes and maintains real libraries.)
