Is it possible to take a TCP connection and tell the kernel to "move" it to a host and port only visible on the machine? Would like to avoid having a program copy all the data around.

@gudenau I would think so – the question is then what sourcery is required to achieve the goal.

What’s the usecase if I may ask?

@giffengrabber Essentially a proxy server, it would just be expected to handle connections that last hours and can transfer non-trivial amounts of data.

@giffengrabber I guess this might be a good use for green threads, something to play with I suppose.
