Question Redirecting

Situation : I want to run several servers on my box, but my ISP don't want, so I want to hide these servers. (I have already posted about it)

Idea : What if I redirect trafic to another port in the temporary range (over 60 000)? I have an old P120 here running some useless thing, I want to know if it's possible to use it as a "living" router. I don't want to buy a real router (I don't have 250$) , but I already have an Hub with an uplink (where my DSL modem is connected) . Is it possible to redirect (with Iptables/ipchain/apache config/masquerading or any tools... I dunno, anything!!) to my main computer running these servers on the trought the network? And if I can do that, will my port will seems open (cuz the forwarding) or no?

For quick and easy redirection, take a look at rinetd.

This seems to be exactly what I need for apache, thanx!!!
But rinetd doesn't work for Ftp or ssh...
