i'm trying to secure my box as much as i can, but i've been told that it's
not a very good idea to leave telnet open, i understand this is transmit
text it clear text, but one of my user can't use port 22 due to his behind
firewall, my question is:

is it possible to make ipfw to transfer all data between ports on same ip?
but i want that rule to be applyed for one ip only

basically what i want to accomplished with this is whenever he'll telnet to
my box he'll route to port 22, even though he'll still be connected to port
23, i'll just tell him to use ssh client instead

thanks in advance
