Unhappy RDP Port redirecting from one Debian Linux through another


Hope someone can help me.

I have 2 debian linux PCs on the same subnet/IP Range, 1st linux PC IP Address is, 2nd linux PC IP Address

1st linux PC has 2 network interfaces, eth1 connected to Cisco Router, eth0 is for local LAN. No NAT on Cisco Router, iptables firewall on linux PC.

2nd Linux PC has 2 network interfaces, eth1 is connected to netgear router via bridge mode, creating a ppp0 connection. eth0 is for local LAN. No NAT on Netgear Router, Iptables firewall on Linux PC.

The 1st linux PC ( is set as the gateway on the network.

My question -
In what way can I redirect all RDP connections from the network via the 1st Linux PC ( through to the 2nd Linux PC ( ?

Help would be appreciated. Been battling with this for a week now.

Kind Regards

Sorry. I don't quite understand your network topology. What network is behind the Cisco Router that eht1 of PC1 is connected to? What network is eth1 on PC2 connected to? IP addresses/netmasks would help. Also, on which address is the RDP service listening? Is the RDP on PC2? That would be unusual, RDP is a windows protocol.
