I'm trying to workaround a broken application which insists on connecting to the private address (and thus unreachable) of a server, instead of connecting to the public address (even if the relevant port is open). Changing the application is not an option.
I'm trying to add iptables rules on the client(s) to change the destination ip for the packets going to 192.168.251.3 to go to 126.96.36.199 instead. DNAT isn't working since 188.8.131.52 is not an IP on any of my client interfaces.
Can anyone point me to the relevant documentation that allows me to use MANGLE to change destination IPs?
