Revinetd - reverse port redirector

Go to the sourceforge project page

Revinetd is a reverse TCP port redirector. It operates in two modes, listen-listen and connect-connect. It can be used to forward traffic through firewalls where outbound rule sets are more liberal than inbound rules.

Revinetd 1.0.2 is released!

The basic premise behind revinetd is to provide reverse data path connectivity from a client system to a target system in order to bypass firewall filtering rules.

The program works in two different modes:

The main reason for using this program is for situations when the established connection path is the opposite from the data flow. Typically most firewalls are configured in a more insecure manner for outbound traffic then inbound. If we want to connect to a service (e.g NetBIOS) that is filtered by a firewall, we can utilize a Relay Agent Mode revinetd instance to connect to the target service and outbound through the firewall's more liberal filtering rules. On the other side, a Server Mode revinetd instance will accept a connection from the client computer and the connect-connect mode instance.
