Hi, are there any standard tools in windows to setup a route from ip1:port1 to ip2:port2? So if I call ip1:port1 I end up calling ip2:port2. I looked at netsh and found something that could be the solution (portmapping under routing - ip - nat), but can't figure out how to setup the whole thing. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The best, and safest, way is use a router. Other than that, XP, and newer versions of Windows allows you to bridge multiple network devices. I think that if you right click on Network Neighborhood and go to properties, and then right click on one of the devices and go to properties, you have an option to bridge the connection. This was really designed for laptops with a wired and wireless device, but that should work. Be forwarned, this will allow users from ip1′s network to have complete access to everything ip2′s network, either way you do this, unless you firewall between them.
