You can forward port 23 to JNOS like:

/sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d  -p tcp --dport 23 -j DNAT --to-destination

With your Jnos ip number

Subject: [nos-bbs] JNOS from MODEM login under Linux

I'm working on attaching a "special" modem to the local Ham linux
boxes here.  (More on the "special" soon...)

I was originally using the modem directly from JNOS so a calling
user would receive the BBS prompt.  With a bit of tweaking that
worked well.

Now I'm going to put the modem on a 'getty' so I can call in and
either get a Linux shell account or PPP connection to the network.

I don't want to loose the ability to call in to JNOS.  Maybe it
is possible to setup a special logon user entry where the shell
command is replaced with a telnet to the JNOS system

So instead of:


I'll put something like:


where port 23 of is the BBS on the JNOS system.

Has anybody tried this or have comments on if it will work?
