    Post Port forward


    I have read Linux iptables: Port Redirection Example
    but I would need some help on port forward.

    I have:

    public_ip(eth0) --pc--

    i need acces from internet to storage on port 80

    what I tryed:
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -i eth0 -d publicip --dport 80 -j DNAT --to
    iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -d --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

    but it still does not work

    Your rules looks ok to me. What about your default polices? Did you see anything in your logs? You also need a POSTROUTING rule to enable masquerading if the redirection goes to another machine.

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE -o ethX
