iptables port forwarding

The problem I have is I want to port forward 2090 (paltalk) to all the machines on my network not just one for file transfer for pal talk. Coming from an external source. I can only do external to one machine on the network.

Please help if you know of a way to enable to allow a single port to be forwarded to multiple machines on a internal network using iptables.

It's called a broadcast message.

Port forward to the LAN broadcast address port 2090, eg,

Then open up the FORWARD chain for the same address.

I'm not sure it will work, if PalTalk doesn't accept a broadcast address, but good luck.

It still does not work.

Maybe I have to switch from using passive mode but I don't know howto stop from using passive mode, or which mode its using to start with.
