xinetd can be used as a transparent proxy, It allows to send a service request towards an other machine to the desired port.

service telnet
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
only_from =
redirect = 23

Let's watch what's going on now:

>>telnet server
Connected to server.
Escape character is '^]'.

Welcome to openSUSE 10.3 (i586)
