-redirect_port problem

I use a FreeBSD box (version 4.7) as my Internet Proxy machine. I presently use the natd daemon to redirect all HTTP 

traffic to our web server and POP/SMTP to our mail server. This works well. A portion of my rc.conf file is:

natd_program="/sbin/natd"       # path to natd, if you want a different one.
natd_enable="YES"                # Enable natd (if firewall_enable == YES).
natd_interface="tl0"               # Public interface or IPaddress to use.
natd_flags=" -redirect_port tcp -redirect_port tcp 25 -redirect_port 

tcp 110 -redirect_port tc
p 80 "       

My Problem

In addition to what I have above, I want to redirect all HTTP traffic from a particular external server (a public IP) to port 

8080 of a local machine for our mobile banking software. So I modified my rc.conf as follows:

natd_flags=" -redirect_port tcp     -redirect_port tcp 25 

-redirect_port tcp 110 -redirect_port tcp 80 "                   #
I have confirmed that can locally browse to the HTTP based software running on the local machine in question 


I will appreciate any help.
