Hello Community,

at this moment I have 3 Linux Boxes (Debian Etch 4.0)!
I am trying to use one of these as a "primary" server, who redirects all Requests to one of the two other boxes.

I want to use portforwarding, because the user should not see whats going on in the background.
I already have tried this method:

iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to *.*.*.*:80
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW --dport 80 -i eth0 -j ACCEPT

this works fine, but only local, but all the servers have a Static IP Adress (,,

this should work like this:

user requests "" (A: the Server ( Redirects the Request to a extern Server =>
this should not be visible for the user

does anyone know how i can fix this problem?

greets from Austria
yours Stefan

PS: Sorry for my bad english
