hmm.. ok im no iptables whiz but i will try this syntax... i have to eliminate nat since they are all public ip addresses.. i suspect maybe something like this might work in our saved rules file? (gentoo)

i suspect maybe this may need to be changed..

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT PREROUTING -d --dport 80 [dont know what to do with -j here] --to

basically anything that say comes in for port 80 needs to go to the same ip address on port 7080 and likewise back out for replies..

any assistance is greatly appreciated..
