Duh. Thanks. I should have seen that. But I still do not understand how this is all working.
Basically I want the to run a default deny ipfilter firewall on the host. Only allowing port 8080 and 8443 (or 4443 there seems to be some confusion with my apps guys on which one is ther real SSL proxy port) connections from internal. I then want to NAT (rdr) to redirect all incominf 80 and 443 connections to that 8080 and 8443 (or 4443) port internal. I suppose it is my lack of familiarity on ipfilter (this is so much easier to do using OBSD'd PF). I'd really like to see some other folks ipnat.conf and ipf.conf files if this is being done already. I'll do some more research and keep the group appraised of my progress. Thanks.
