redirect only works for redirecting to a local service.


server A has a service on port 500
server A has REDIRECT(transparent proxy) which points port 5000->500
connections from remote systems to port 5000 will end up on port 500
connections from the local system(Server A) to port 5000 will fail.

it will NOT work in combonation with port forwarding in redirecting
traffic to another host.

this could be a problem yes if you have a redirect statement on the
same port as your port forwarding. to use transparent proxy you need:

in your kernel config(debian kernels store their config in
/boot/config-`uname -r`)
