Thank you for your answers. Jima, your solution works exactly how i want and it couldn't be easier to do. I'm not an expert in RFC's or DNS protocol, but looking dnsmasq's code I realized that redirection to a specific port probably couldn't be solved easily editing source. Simon, congrats for dnsmasq and thank you too. You've been immensely aid me.
