	Correct.  I have tried setting up port forwarding on several servers
this way and have never been able to get it to work.  Some of the machines
are RHEL 4.x and some are 5.x.  Selinux is not running on any of the
machines and I can go from Machine1 to the port I want on Machine2 with no
problem.  I only have a problem when it comes to forwarding the ports.
	All installations and upgrades are done using up2date/yum so they
are stock rpms.  I have searched the internet before resorting to this list
and always come up with the same answers, run:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward (which was set to 0 orginally)
iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp -m tcp --dport 3389 -j DNAT
--to-destination 209.209.209.209:80
iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 3389 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s myip here -j ACCEPT
