three line guide to "port-forwarding:"
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $EXT_IF -p tcp --dport $OUTSIDE_PORT \
-j DNAT --to-destination $INSIDE_HOST_IP:$INSIDE_PORT
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i $EXT_IF -p tcp --syn \
-d $INSIDE_HOST_IP --dport $INSIDE_PORT -j ACCEPT
where example values for all the variables are:
"Peter: Lois, When I'm through with them, our kids will be so smart,
they'll be able to program their own VCRs without spilling piping hot
gravy all over myself."
