You create a single gateway for all the services and then use the 
portforwarding. This way you can forward port 25 to host A, 80 to host B 
and so on. The hosts A and B have to be behind this gateway machine. 
Much the same way LAN gateways are done. If you have some more detailed 
questions, just drop a line.
