Slackware 10 IPTables How to forward ports.

Hello,
I'm sure there is an easy way to do this, but i am confused on the iptables concept.  I currently have the Internet WAN port on eth3 on the Slackware Box.  Eth1 is connected to our internal network.  I want to forward the port 3389 so that a connection can come in through eth3 (WAN Port), then go to eth1 to the ip address 192.168.8.4.  Please help!

If you have a setup connection between your slackware and 192.168.8.4 - all you need is:
1) Start iptables.
2) #iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING --in-interface eth3 -p tcp --dport 3389 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.8.4
3) Save iptables and if everything works - just have fun

by "-p" you spacifie what protocol to match. If the service is udp -> use "-p udp"

Good Luck
