i doubt v much u can do that on the netgear... you actually want to push traffic the other way around 

{your process} -> {your net stack} -> divert tcp/9999 -> tcpmssd -> original destination ... 

whether your router will like that, i have no idea. we used to run shdsl with the router in bridged mode....
