You shouldn't need the ipmasq package, NAT has been built into iptables for 

A rule like this should do the trick:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -d $external-ip --dport $external-port \  
-j DNAT --to $internal-ip:$internal-port

You will probably need a rule like this as well:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o $external-ip -s $internal-ip -j MASQUERADE

$internal-ip in the last one can be changed to the network range, and will 
allow general NAT for that network.
