any port from single IP addr

Does anyone know of a way to open a socket (or other api) which will
give me packets addressed to any port on my machine but from a
specific IP address?

I have to write an app which will selectively route packets between
a client and server on separate lans across a multihomed host. My
client and server lans are separated by a firewall. The client and
server communicate with via TCP, UDP and SNMP and they use a variety
of ports. I would like this "router" app to know nothing about what
protocols the client/server are using -- just their IP addresses.
