I want to forward local requests to a mashine on the network.
I have a few hundred cgi scripts running on the webserver and using a
mysql-server on the same host. now i have set up a separate
mysql-linux-box and since it would be to much work to rewrite all the
scripts, im trying to redirect all trafic from localhost:3306 to
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 3306 -j DNAT --to 195.x.x.x
which works well form inet to inet but if I put '-o lo' to the line it
i understand that this could be becouse the source of the packets would
also require some rewriting, but i dont know how to do this. is there a
way to solve this with iptables or shoud i try it with ssh-tunels?
