There are situations (for example a cluster implementation) where one
has to proxy UDP packets to make the client node's BMCs accessible to
the external world. There are many UDP proxy implementations available
and it is trivial to write one on your own. I feel it is best to
leave this job to NAT system that comes along with your kernel.

For example, under Linux kernel, you can use Netfilter DNAT
(Destination Network Address Translation) and packet filtering rules
to achieve this. If you are looking for an example script, let me
know.
