    Messy story but I need to forward traffic hitting my router on a specific port, lets say 1980 to a shared web server. So it needs to forward to somewebserver.com.....Possible?

    Thx

    It will work if your router is the internet gateway for the other server. Otherwise, probably not.

    Should be possible. You'd just need to add a DNAT in PREROUTING (to redirect to the other server) and an SNAT in POSTROUTING (so that the request looks like it came from your router, so the return traffic will go there first).
