I am trying to set up a forward from one machine to another on a remote network across the Internet.
I want to receive requests on one box on port 8080 and simply forward them to a remote machine on the same port. I have tried the following rules, to no avail. I have IPFIREWALL_FORWARD in my kernel (4.10), and # ipfw show reports the hits to the rule.
# ipfw add 1000 fwd 216.209.x.x tcp from any to me 8080 # ipfw add 1000 fwd 216.209.x.x,8080 tcp from any to me 8080 # ipfw add 1000 fwd 216.209.x.x tcp from any to me 8080 # ipfw add 1000 fwd 216.209.x.x,8080 from any to any 8080
I can not see the packets going back out of the machine, nor does ipfw log anything at the other end. # tcpdump at the remote end does not pick up any traffic.
Does this have something to do with the fact that I am going across the Internet, and it is trying to route the packets back to itself (I understand the dest does not get changed). If so, how could I re-write the packets so they will get delivered?
Tks for any help on this

You have answered yourself why doesn't forwarding work at this situation. If you want to forward http traffic you may try squid (www/squid) in accelerator mode.
