I have a number of machines sitting behind my WRT54GS (w/ latest stock/Linksys firmware) each running web, email, ftp, ssh, etc. servers. I know I can only set up one machine for Port Forwarding for those corresponding ports at a time. Is there a workaround so that I can get to all the machine's services even they all have the same ports?

TIA

Port Forwarding requires a specific internal static Ip Address so I don't really see any way around this. Maybe someone else has a thought.

No can do. :)

The work-around is to use a domain provider or something like DynDNS to translate incoming ports to alternate ports for the additional servers. It's not going to happen at your router or later.

so my only option is something like this:

server 1 - 11080, 11022, 11021, 11025, 11143, etc.
server 2 - 12080, 12022, 12021, 12025, 12143, etc.
server 3 - 13080, 13022, 13021, 13025, 13143, etc.
...etc.?

and open those ports on the router and specific these ports in the appropriate clients/browsers?

Youcan not get aorund the fact that you only have one ISP provided IP Address. A Dynamic DNS Service can only translate one IP Address. This means that all traffic would have to be routed back to the same DNS name, no matter what.
if you care care to share some more information as to what it is you are trying to do, there may be a better way to "skin this cat".

i'm throwing up a couple of machines to test and evaluate Zimbra, Scalix, Asterisk, Exchange 2007, OpenVPN, Funambol, Hamachi, Nagios, Splunk... i'm basically having an orgy and i need holes open.

what's wrong with the idea of boppin' to bigolfeast.com:11080 for getting server 1's web server and bigolfeast.com:13080 for server 3's web server?
