What sort of port forwarding?

There is SSH port redirection, as above, or is the box a network gateway running ipfw/etc and performing NAT?

man iptables

then you can do something like:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING  -d --dport 55 -j DNAT --to-destination

That will forward port 55 to internal IP (5 octet IP, woot...)

Just substitute IPs and ports as needed.
