I can't make 10.10.60.3 use 10.10.60.4 as the router.
If I loaded a port forwarding application on 10.10.60.3 and had it
forward ports to .4 for port 5900 I would not have this requirement.
Can't iptables to the same thing somehow?
I have a java application that would do the port forwarding I need,
EXCEPT, that application will not let me restrict by ip address. BUT,
now that I think about it, I could run this java application to forward
the ports and just use iptables to make that port only available to
certain IPs. It would be accomplishing the same thing I suppose.
Would still rather do it with iptables since that would be one less
point of failure.
