Question SuSEFirewall and Internal Port Routing

Hello there! I apologize if this is a duplication... I've sifted through the archives and can't find an article quite like it.

To replace my WiFi router (caught fire, very bad!), I've placed a Linux (SuSE 8.2) box between my cable modem and the rest of my network. This box does not provide DHCP, only internet access using the forwarding services of SuSEFirewall. I've been able to forward the incoming SSH traffic to the Linux server; however, I need to forward other traffic to an internal computer.

In this case, it's RDP traffic onto a Windows 2003 (ducks and hides) Server that I'm testing. So, I need to configure:

<external ip>:54321 -->

How would I accomplish this? I can find, in SuSEFirewall, where to allow ports, but I don't see where I can configure a NAT/PAT redirection.

Any FAQs or such would be great.

lots of fine tuning can be done here: Yast2->system->editor for /etc/sysconfig-> network->firewall->susefirewall2

Awesome, thanks! I hadn't thought to look in there. I found the line for forwarding that I needed and everything is working great!

Thanks again!
