I have a program that wants to connect to on port 5678, but it can't because the port is blocked on our network. However, I do have an SSH tunnel set up that redirects localhost:5678 to

How do I redirect all traffic to/from so that it actually goes through localhost:5678?

I don't want all traffic to/from a specific port to be redirected, nor do I want all traffic to/from to go to localhost, just this specific port and IP combination.


I think balance http://www.inlab.de/balance.html is a good option for your use case

Though its main purpose is a balancing, it can be used for just traffic redirection on specific port

balance SOMEPORT anotherhost:SOMEOTHERPORT

will forward all connection to SOMEPORT to anotherhost:SOMEOTHERPORT
