I installed kvm and set several guests on a server using vmbuilder. Here is the following configuration :

server host1 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) ->  guest vm1 (192.168.0.3)
                               ->  guest vm2 (192.168.0.4)

Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the fix IP address of host1.

I would like to connect to vm1 using the following command:

ssh username@host1 -p 2222

I tried to do it by adding the following rule in iptables:

sudo iptables --table nat --append PREROUTING --protocol tcp --destination xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --destination-port 2222 --jump DNAT --to-destination 192.168.0.3:22

But I got a timeout when I'm running:

ssh username@host1 -p 2222

Here are my iptables rules:

sudo iptables -nL -v --line-numbers -t nat
