How to re-route traffic from one port to another?

Hi Friends,

How to do port forwarding in AIX? We would like to re route traffic from port A to port B on AIX LPAR.

for example: my application is using 8080 port on LPAR and would like to use the 8081 instead of 8080. By default application was configured with 8080. But instead of changing in application (several ) config files. We would like to forward traffic from 8080 to 8081. I understand that, it can be done by network engineer at their end as well. But we would like to implement it on AIX side.

Please let me know, how this can be done on AIX LPAR.

Thank you

My product knowledge is dated, I just Google well: If it lacks iptables, you might need to buy something lile AppScan, Load Balancer or Tivoli Lotus: IBM Knowledge Center There is some mention of NAPT, like NAT: IBM Knowledge Center There is always 'tcp_forward", a generic firewall proxy, but it does not scale well.
