Map traffic for external IP to internal IP
I need to remap IP traffic for a host on the Internet to a host inside my firewall.
I've done some digging around, but haven't come up with a clear understanding of how to do this.

If you access the targeted server via an URL you can add this URL on the DNS forwarder and set the IP to your internal IP.
Unfortunately, I have Flash files that are hardcoded to make remoting calls to the IP address directly. So, no DNS lookups are being performed.
I'm guessing by the stony silence this question has accumulated, this isn't something that pfsense is going to help me with.
In the meantime, I came up with an alternate solution. I setup a vpn connection to my internal server using OpenVPN. I created a new interface with the external host's IP. I setup a route for that IP from my workstation across the vpn.
So, whenever I need to take over the external site's IP, I activate the vpn connection.
I supposed using a proxy server on the pfsense box would be a way to go to keep the solution on the firewall box.
