comment how to route external IP to internal without MASQUERADE
it turns out I can't convert a key component to webserver/websocket.

Interesting. I wish I knew about this earlier actually. Although some of what I'm doing is raw tcp (not webserver) I might be able to change this over to websockets.

I would just like to clarify that I have no idea whether the packets are coming back or not. I'm completely stumped actually.

Well my question was "Should there be an interface at this point?" And it turns out there was one. I just needed to do "ifconfig -a" instead of "ifconfig" to see it.... If you mean that the ubuntu manuals are not correct, and that I haven't fixed them. Yes, they aren't.

ok, so. I've installed this rule set on the local side: ip rule add from 192.168.2.0/24 table 42 and ip route add default dev tap0 table 42 ... they appear to function ... but still the 8000 webserver is not visible from the outside.. which makes me think now that the problem is on the remote end. not the client side.

Ok I've been researching and researching and I think somehow this: policy based routing is going to com into place.. of course they left out enough information that I will need to research for another hour to even know if it is what I should do.. :-(

yah, I'm doing DNAT.. the problem is the packets aren't coming back :-).. If I stick the MASQUERADE on then the packets come back, but they lose IP information.

I am super stuck. If anyone has any clues I would be grateful. Basically I think the packs are getting across, but not coming back. But they should because I have that "ip route replace default" which should send the packets over, and then they should be picked up and forwarded to out eth0 on the remote... no?
