    This isn't a Tomato question per se, but if I could get a quick answer to a very specific use case I think it could lead a few people to Tomato.


    Is there a way to write an iptables rule to affect outbound (LAN) UDP traffic destined to an external (WAN) address, redirecting it to a different external (WAN) destination address?

    I've spent some time reading about iptables. But, I'm not getting it. I have a feeling it's a simple one-liner.


    There is a vendor software which uses a hardcoded IP address for its client to contact a regional server. There are times users of that software would like to rule out whether a problem is specific to the regional server by temporarily pointing to a server in a different region.

    If someone familiar with iptables could help, myself and others would appreciate it.
