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 random module is not included in the regular iptables source
package. (I don't know why). I guess you have to patch it yourself.


Hi Per,

Sure, i could patch & compile it myself, but (besides other reaons for
not doing so) i would be the only one benefitting fom it.

So the essential question (who is maintaining iptables?) is indeed _why_
is that module not included.
If it would be some obscure and unmaintained patch from "John Doe" it
would be understandable. But it looks like an option that the maintainer
has forgotton to enable....

Or, if there was a good reason for not doing so, i woud very much like
to know it.

Hans
