I have a gateway system, which hides 3 other computers from the outside world. I wish to setup a FTP server such that when I access the FTP server on the gateway, I reach one of the inner hidden systems, i.e., if I ftp to 18.104.22.168, I automatically see the 192.168.1.2 ftp directory, where 192.168.1.2 is the local system. Also, can this be done for HTTP servers also? I get to see the web directory of the inner system?
What you do is have the gateway forward the ports to the internal machines. Anyone accessing the FTP/HTTP/anything else servers think that they are accessing the gateway machine, but it's just forwarding the connection to an interior machine. You can use iptables to do this. Check out http://www.netfilter.org for all that you need to know about setting up iptables."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
