View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setting up Port Address Translation?

September 14th, 2009, 02:58 PM
Any ideas on how to setup an Ubuntu Server 9.04 to do Port Address translation?

That is, I want to connect to my http server on port 80 using a different port.

Please do not suggest changing the default port because that is not what i want to do :D

Any ideas?

I am using this to open a port in a router for a torrent application:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -i eth0 --dport 33697 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.xxx.xxx:33697

Maybe you can try:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 --dport 8080 -j DNAT --to-destination your-server-ip:80
