My PC has the linux box as its default gateway and the linux box is configured as a router, so in theory I should be able to capture streams passing through that box.  I've tried the setting up the iptables as described in the documentation.  I'm not sure if I need to specify a user in my redirect statement since the traffic is not generated locally.  The end result is that I can play my streams fine, tcp dump seems to indicate the stream is passing through the router as expected, but rtmpdump doesn't do anything.

The example iptables command only works for locally generated connections. You'll
have to read the iptables doc yourself to come up withthe proper command for a
router. I don't know it offhand, and I'm on the road and unable to research it
at the moment.
