iptables: Port Redirection


The syntax is as follows to redirect tcp $srcPortNumber port to $dstPortNumber:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport $srcPortNumber -j REDIRECT --to-port $dstPortNumber


The following example redirects TCP port 25 to port 2525:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 25 -j REDIRECT --to-port 2525
