Use rinetd. It's a daemon. Then put in /etc/rinetd.conf

202.53.x.x 80 192.168.y.y 80

where .y.y is the local IP extension of your www server. All port 80
requests coming into your gtw will be redirected. The gatway itself can't
be listening to port 80 itself, though, so no httpd:80.


Certain flaws are necessary for the whole. It would
seem strange if old friends lacked certain quirks.
