    I have a special task to complete: I need to configure a Linux cloud server to act as a proxy for another server halfway around the world.

    Basically, this Linux will have a public IP address and will listen on port 1000. If a client establishes a connection with it, it should forward all traffic to another server port 1000, also on the public internet.

    - I'm not sure if this is a NAT or route relationship?
    - Do I need 2 eth interfaces for this?
    - Do I need 2 IP addresses for this, or can it be done with one?
    - Can I setup this forwarding with iptables or route alone, or do I need a specialized proxy software?
