We have a server which main focus is to stream data from one point to another.
transfer data form 192.168.0.10:5000 to 192.168.0.20:6000 transfer data form 184.108.40.206:5000 to 192.168.0.20:6000 transfer data form 192.168.0.255:5000 to 192.168.0.20:6000
I assume the best way to do that would by
iptables but since we need to support multicast this doesn't seem to be an option (at least for multicast)
I know how I can make socat run as a service but my question is if I should run socat as a service. Sometimes there might be hours where it would idle and days where it would transfer data every second.
Is socat ready to run 24/7 and receiving/transmitting data?
