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,
--to-destination 192.168.1.255:2060

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.
