Hi all,

i would like to add random-function to my iptables
But allthough i thought i added enough i seem to miss something..


iptables -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p udp --dport 1200 -m state --state NEW -m
random --average 25 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.87.141.197:1201
iptables v1.4.8: Couldn't load match
`random':/usr/lib/xtables/libipt_random.so: cannot open shared object file:
No such file or directory

find / -iname "*libipt_random*"
[indeed nothing]

zypper search xtables
i | libxtables7 | iptables extension interface
i | xtables-addons | IP Packet Filter Administration
Extensions
i | xtables-addons-kmp-xen | IP Packet Filter Administration
Extensions


So where can i find "libipt_random.so" ?


Hans

Even stranger...
it looks like, it should have been a part of mainstream iptables
package, according to:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libipt_random.so

But that specific module is missing in 11.3, 11.4 and sles11sp1
(and i assume also in 12.1)

The functionality it provides is described in:
http://www.netfilter.org/documentation/HOWTO/netfilter-extensions-HOWTO-3.html
and
http://linuxgazette.net/108/odonovan.html

afaict, there is nothing to replace it.
