I need to redirect port 443 to external IP. Rinetd works well but it has a bug where it generates huge log files to the point which cripples your server. See bug report here

Is there an alternative to Rinetd which forwards all port traffic to external IPs?

There are a variety of tcp proxy servers that will accomplish the same thing.

xinetd can forward connections via the redirect directive. See the xinetd.conf(5) man page for more information.

balance is a simple tcp proxy solution that works well for this sort of thing.

socat and netcat can both function as tcp proxies.

If you're dealing explicitly with HTTPS connections, any SSL capable web proxy will also get you what you want. This includes squid and pound.
