Install nth extension of iptable

+1 vote
271 views

I am trying to install nth extension into iptables to implement load balancing. On the net found a lot of thread that explain how u can use nth extension but a very little bit that explain how install it. (linux kernel compiling, strange patch ..)

I use DEBIAN 7 kernel -> linux 3.2.0-4-686-pae
iptables 1.4.14

If nth extension is already default installed in another free Linux distribution, is always a good solution!

I am trying to use byte counters to know how much total data is transferred from an IP. However, simple test with ping shows that it counts 14 bytes less, probably ignoring later 2 header.

Is my understanding correct or am I missing something in this?

After testing and looking at the kernel source, I realize that this mapping:

iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp -m tcp --dport 30000:40000 -j DNAT --to [local_ip]:10000-2000

Doesn't do a one-to-one port mapping
e.g.:

100.0.0.1:30000 > 192.168.0.5:10000
100.0.0.1.30001 > 192.168.0.5:10001
100.0.0.1.30002 > 192.168.0.5:10002

I was wondering if it was possible to do the 1:1 port range forwarding to different port ranges or if you have to use individual rules.

We suffer from DNS lookups with a response IP address which is not existing. Can Iptables check on this?

I want to forward all http traffic coming in from a perticular IP at local port 8080, to 2 particular IP Addresses (port 80). Is it enough to prepend the following in my IPtable

-A PREROUTING -s xx.xx.xx.xx/24 -p tcp --dport 8080 -j DNAT --to-destination xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80
-A PREROUTING -s xx.xx.xx.xx/24 -p tcp --dport 8080 -j DNAT --to-destination yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:80

I have some issue with module (owner) in iptables v1.4.14

Current rule fails:
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p tcp -s x.x.x.x -m owner --gid-owner usergroup -j DNAT --to-destination x.x.x.x:80;
I tried to use numeric gid, it failed too..

But this rule works fine:
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p tcp -s x.x.x.x -m owner --uid-owner user -j DNAT --to-destination x.x.x.x:80;

Is it a BUG or I am missing something?
