Using the TRACE target: [WayBackiptables debugging « \1 via [WayBack] iptables Debugging using the TRACE chain – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+


This target marks packes so that the kernel will log every rule which match the packets as those traverse the tables, chains,
rules. (The ipt_LOG or ip6t_LOG module is required for the logging.) The packets are logged with the string prefix: “TRACE:
tablename:chainname:type:rulenum ” where type can be “rule” for plain rule, “return” for implicit rule at the end of a user
defined chain and “policy” for the policy of the built in chains.
It can only be used in the raw table.

Way more details in the linked article.

linux port forwarding to external ip – Google Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/20

For my Link Archive via linux port forwarding to external ip – Google Search:

Need to look at this more closely, but it looks like you need PREROUTING, FORWARD and POSTROUTING and two NATs (DNAT and SNAT), as this graph from Port Forwarding Using iptables – SysTutorials shows:

 - nat (dst)   |           - filter      - nat (src)
               |                            |
               |                            |
              INPUT                       OUTPUT
              - filter                    - nat (dst)
               |                          - filter
               |                            |

Fighting with IPv6 – There and back again

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/09


During the last weeks I finally got my hands dirty with IPv6. A comment on my blog and an email informed me that my server (hosting this blog) is not reachable via IPv6, albeit it has an IPv6 address. That said, I tried to get that running and fell into several holes, due to firewalls, […]
