There is something that does just that! It's part of the TIS fwtk 
(firewall toolikit) and is called plug-gw. It's a tiny little program you 
run from inetd.conf and that redirects connections to specific ports on 
the current host to other addresses (host:ports). It is driven by a 
configuration file where you can specify the host/port to connect to 
based on the origin of the connection. Very nice stuff, and amazingly 
compact (like the rest of the TIS fwtk).

You can grab it off (look around, it's a bit hard to 
find). You can also get to it by surfing from, but 
again, it's a bit hidden (most of the pages are about commercial 
products, but the fwtk is free).
