I've been programming for most of my life, since I got my hands on a Casio Pocket Computer circa 1986.

Since then I have coded in both assembly and Basic for the TRS80, the Commodore 64/128, an HP48, and every single iteration of the x86 family since the 8088.

I have worked with a multitude of languages from assembly (65xx, z80, x86, Saturn, etc...), c/c++, java, php, basic, javascript and even a couple of esoteric languages such as brainfuck. That, of course, is meaningless unless you are able to create something useful with whatever language you use, and that's what I have tried do since I started programming.

I think this is it!!! At a first glance it appears to be similar to rinetd with lost of powerful rules, including some that can be based on the domain name, which is exactly what I need it. Thank you Mihai!

Perhaps the answer I gave to RSchulze (above) is a bit easier to understand.

I have several domains hosted at a server. They all point to server's IP address, but I will need to be able to have this server redirect the traffic (of some of those domains) to some other server and this needs to be done without changing the IP address to which those domains are pointing.

Actually, it's the reverse. I would like to ONLY redirect, based on the incoming host name. For example, if serverfault.com tries to connect, then all traffic is allowed to pass through to server handling the routing/redirection. But, if mydomain.tld is detected, then I want all the traffic to be redirected to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

I have started playing with rinetd and it does exactly what you describe, unfortunately it does not allow host names in the rules section; from the man page: Host names are NOT permitted in allow and deny rules... and without host-based rules, I won't be able to achieve what I'm looking for.

That sounds promising. How about support for additional ports, such as 25, 110, etc...?

@DavidHoude: Because I will be (temporarily) hosting all those web sites on a local computer. I would then use a server (host A), to which I have full access, to redirect the traffic coming from my domains to my local computer (host B). I could probably use no-ip.com's "PlusService", but that would mean moving all my domains from NetSol to no-ip.com and also incurring on an additional (albeit small) charge.

@RahulPatil domain X is hosted outside of host A. Think of domain X as google.com, for example.

@MichaelHampton: I have a number of web sites hosted on an unmanaged server which I'm just about to cancel, for reasons that don't pertain to this thread. So I would like to be able to re-configure all my domains (registered at NetSol) to point to a machine with an static IP (that would be host A) and then have it redirect all traffic to a local (in-house) computer (host B), which unfortunately, has a dynamic IP address. That is basically it.

@DavidHoude: If possible, I wouldn't want to restrict any protocol, but if that were to be necessary I'd be happy with www, ftp, ssh and smpt. As for the server, I'm running Apache, but this is the "target" machine (B); the machine handling the redirection (A) is running Windows Server 2008R2.
