Simple enough...iptables..port forwarding

Hi guys,

I just wanted a little help.

Could someone give me some sample IPTABLES lines to do port forwading of ports 7750:7751 for both UDP and TCP, to a machine (

The router/firewall has:
-eth0 as the internal NIC on IP
-eth1 as the external NIC on a dynamic IP

And also, isn't #IPTABLE --check suppose to be the command to do rule checking with ITPABLES? If not, what is it to do rule checking please?

Thanks Alot

Yopu may have already sorted this but a rule like the following should work

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 7750:7751 -i eth1 -j DNAT --to

any connection to eth1 on ports 7750 or 7751 will be passed through to (just change tcp fpr udp for the udp part).
