    Hi. Thanks for the response. My partcular question is how todo the port re-direction. openSUSE 10.2 seems to use SUSEFirewall2 and I wanted to know how I have to change the configuration files. What would be ideal is to also find out if this is possible to configure this through Yast2

    I was using suse 9.x only, and there was no such option in yast2.

    /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 (there's example)
    #which means all tcp connections from 192.168.1.* to ANYwhere:80 and to anywhere:8080 redirect to local port 3128
