redirect with ipfw to an external server
I like to install an redirect from 127.0.0.1:8080 to server_xy:80 on my mac
this works (I can see the site of my webserver on the mac):
sudo ipfw add 100 fwd 127.0.0.1,80 tcp from any to any 8080
but this doesn't works (redirect to google.de -> timeout):
sudo ipfw add 100 fwd 188.8.131.52,80 tcp from any to any 8080
Could you help me, please?

I am no expert with ipfw, but it appears (from a quick read of the man page) that you will be unable to accomplish this with a fwd action to an external address.
You mentioned you have Apache running on the local machine. Why not set up Apache to answer to 127.0.0.1:8080 and redirect from there?
