Hey guys/girls

I’m a noob when it comes to Linux so I hope someone would be able to help me. I run an Linux 8.0 box as a dialup server on dsl. I have a few domain names pointing to this server.
What I want to do is to point one of this domain names to an other machine on my network. I run an game server on the network machine so I want my friends to join the server. So in their game they will set their server to “” witch is on of my domain names pointing to my server. Then I want to redirect all traffic coming in on that domain name to “” witch is one of my machines on my network.

Is it possible?

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

Sure can be done. You'll have to set-up an iptables rule
to pass incoming traffic to the port that the game talks on
on to the server that will be hosting the players.
