Port Forwarding



I am trying to do port forwarding and I just can't seem to get it to work.
I hope that someone can help.

Machine 1 is running RHEL AS 4.4 with the 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp kernel.
iptables has been running as my firewall since I set it up.

I am trying to get anything that comes in to port 3389 on "Machine 1" to go
to "Machine2" at a different location.  Lets say for this that the IP of
"Machine1" is 70.70.70.70 and the remote machine ("Machine 2") that I want
to forward to is 209.209.209.209.  I am assuming that I don't have to do
anything on "Machine2" except make sure the firewall for that port is opened
to "Machine 1".

I have done the following on "Machine 1":
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Here is my /etc/sysconfig/iptables file from "Machine 1".  This is not the
one that I would normally use because it is to open, but am for testing.
