Hey,

I have to build an application that permits :

-1> forward TCP/UDP requests on port p1 to another IP machine on port p2
-2> enable multiplexing request on port p2
selecting either machine M1 with IP1 on port p2; or machine M2 on port p2; or machine M3 on port p2...

I think all this is possible using a server routing application that permit multiplexing
external users can use a client application that indicates which machine is to be connected on port p2

Any good ideas, or any examples are welcome
I am searching for an example with Delphi spource (7 prefered)


Thanks in advance

Laurent

I have shown the Author what to use to accomplish what he is asking for #35342853. Also I directed him where to find examples #35343153.

Also I have got a chance to write a simple example using "TidMappedPortTCP" if the Author is interested in details:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  IdMappedPortTCP1.MappedHost := IP Address;       // the remote address where the packets to be forwarded.
  IdMappedPortTCP1.MappedPort := RPort;                // the remote port where the forwarded packets are expected at.
  IdMappedPortTCP1.DefaultPort := LPort;                  // the local port where the local communication is taking place at.
  IdMappedPortTCP1.Active :=  True;
end;

Open in new window


I needed to forward a communication between a Client and Server from one PC to another, the Client is on my PC (IP:127.0.0.1 & port:123) and the Server is on another PC (IP:192.168.0.3 & listening port:112) so what I did is activating the "IdMappedPortTCP" with the following properties in my PC, where I have the Client:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  IdMappedPortTCP1.MappedHost := '192.168.0.3';
  IdMappedPortTCP1.MappedPort := 112;
  IdMappedPortTCP1.DefaultPort := 123;
  IdMappedPortTCP1.Active :=  True;
end;

Open in new window


After activating the IdMappedPortTCP all the communications were forwarded from the Client to the Server.
