Port Redirection on Windows Server 2008

I would like to redirect all requests sent to Server A on port 110, 1433, 25, etc to be redirected to Server B. I believe Windows has a built in method for this via command line, but nothing I am trying is working. Does anyone have a working example to redirect a port?

Thank you.

this can be done at the router but not at the server, AFAIK

guessing this has http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Windows_Networking/Q_27858248.html#a38380339 in common

It looks possible at the server level. This guy made free opensource software to do this:
http://www.quantumg.net/portforward.php

But its not reliable, it crashes often. But he says he does it simply, unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with source code to figure out the commands he used to make this.

Tested it and it seems to work.. I could not compile the source into a working binary on my machine though.  I downloaded the binary (both the old and the new) both would redirect fine locally but not external to my network.. I tried google.com 74.125.226.37 as the destination

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You can consult these two articles about setting port forwarding / port mapping on Windows Server 2008:

I don't have a Windows Server 2008 at my disposal so I haven't tested the scheme.

Another option is to use PassPort port forwarding utility Win XP.

-- no points --  d_nedelchev's second link works

Tried passport and it didn't even work for local redirects.
The netsh route did work.. both locally and externally
