`iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d -p tcp --dport 80 --syn -j REDIRECT --to-port 1024`
Don't forget to persist this iptables rule across reboots with some sort of script (`iptables-persistent` apt package is a good candidate)

Kernel Parameters
Newer kernels require kernel parameters to be set in order for iptables to intercept traffic over bridged networks

You must enable the `br_netfilter` kernel module with this command:

`modprobe br_netfilter`

Then, enable the kernel settings:

`sysctl -w net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-arptables=1`

`sysctl -w net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptable=1`

Make sure you set the parameters in `/etc/sysctl.conf` to persist across reboots
