Route traffic based on the PORT #

Unanswered Question
May 29th, 2007

Hello all,

I need to setup a rule on a router. Any SMTP traffic destined for a certain I.P address must route traffic to a certain address. The Ip Route command can route traffic based on source and destination I.P addressing, but how can I filter this traffic based on port 25 (smtp)?
