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 ftp://ftp.tis.com (look around, it's a bit hard to 
find). You can also get to it by surfing from http://www.tis.com, but 
again, it's a bit hidden (most of the pages are about commercial 
products, but the fwtk is free).
