Port => Port Forwarding!


Hello, I have a server that is setup with the following

Server A: 1.2.3.4:9000

I have a second CentOS 5 server (Server B) that I would like to run this Server A though.

Example: 1.2.3.4:9000 (A) = > 5.6.7.8:9000 (B)

With 5.6.7.8:9000 showing the same data as 1.2.3.4:9000

This is not HTTP data and is TCP.

Make it more clear your question. Are you looking a solution to run two servers with a application listening on port 9000? In that case you can use High-Availability or Load-Balancing solution.

Port => Port Forwarding!
forward eth2 to network if. (sorry no ref.)
Code:
if [ -f /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward ]; then
    echo "Activating IPv4 packet forwarding."
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
  fi

sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth2 -j MASQUERADE
also,
see the file /etc/sysctl.conf and add this line,
Code:
#---------------------------------------------------------------
# Enable IP routing. Required if your firewall is protecting a
# network, NAT included
#---------------------------------------------------------------
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
Hope this helps, happy hollidays every one!

Hi, I don't know what that error means.

Use the scripts to check.

Quote:
sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth2 -j MASQUERADE
Make sure you change "eth2" to suit the external network.

($IPTABLES -A POSTROUTING -t nat -o $EXT_IF -j MASQUERADE)

eg. on my system it is eth0. where, eth0=ext_if and eth1=int_if

That's all I got.
