First off - sorry for the duplicate mail - our mail was not going through
the new line so I got someone else to send it for me.
Anyway - back to the problem.

Maybe mailservers was a bad example - in fact I don't know why I said it
because we are only running one mailserver in here. What I really should
have said is webservers - because we will be running squillions of them here
all on port 80.

No - we aren't looking for round robin or any kind of load balancing dealy
here just to route requests straight through to the appropriate machine...

Basically what we want is if a packet is sent to port n on machine
aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd then we want it to end up at port n on machine
aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd. Can this be done with smoothwall - or indeed anything
running under linux or do we need some more fancy gizmos
Thanks for listening
