How can I do port forwarding using the nc command, so that a host can't act as web server ?
I am looking for configuration something like this..

Client open test.com on his web browser

test.com forward port 80 to example.com [example.com is running as a web server]

so client would get all the web service of example.com while typing test.com on his web browser.

Is there any workaround on this using netcat (nc) ?

There is another way to use mkfifo and two instances of nc per connection.
