Glad you like it. :)

Destination NAT (portforwarding).

The resulting command will most likely look something like this;
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT
if eth0 is the interface connected to internet, the inside webserver is
192.168.1.2 and that server listens to port 8080 for inbound connections.
Note that this requires kernel-support, so if iptables complains about
"target not found" or something like that you'll have to recompile the
kernel. The configuration options are at Network Options -> Netfilter
Configuration and requires "Network packet filtering" (also under
Network Options") to be enabled.
Hope the example helps.
