route locally generated traffic to ip:port to localhost:port


For reasons to complex to explain I would like that if a local application requests for example to connect to it actually connects to (or different port). How would I do this?

You can use iptables and the OUTPUT chain and nat to redirect the request:
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -m tcp -p tcp -d --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination
