This can be done (I believe) with ipfwadm. I'm using IP Masquerading
through ipfwadm to route www, and ftp requests on my internal
192.168.202.x network. So far, I haven't had any problems. For some info
on how to set it up, check out http://www.xos.nl/linux/ipfwadm/paper/ .
Unless I'm totally off base, and I may well be : -) you should be able to
masquerade any port you want.
