    You can do it . Normally the whole packet will store as a structure .So when you receive a socket you can just change the particular structure member ( part of the packet ) then you can forward it .

    I think you are using send and receive functions in you socket program.Instead try with sendto ,recvfrom functions you will get the address and port of the other informations in the packet .

    man recvfrom
    man sendto

    yeah....u r right am using send and receive functions....i am using visual studio ..am not coding in linux.....i think i get all the individual fields of the packet ...i think i will be able to get only source ip...port etc etc..but i want the packet right from IP header....

    in which structure i receive the details.....and can i send the same packet as such to another server
