    Hi all - I'm currently running Tomato Firmware v1.20.1481 and I would like to setup a port forward to an external IP, effectively making my router act as a proxy server. So I want the router to listen on a certain port, say 505, and forward any traffic to that port to an external IP on the internet (ie pop.mail.yahoo.com) over another port, say 110. Is there some way to do this with advanced scripts or an advanced route entry in the router configuration? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I just did it simply by specifying an external IP on the portforward, instead of an internal IP.

    I'm on Tomato v1.27

    DOH, didnt even think to try that because the column header says "INT" address so didnt think it was possible. Works like a charm though! Thanks!
