Curious as to why CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_TARGET_TPROXY was reverted from the Asuswrt-Merlin Linux-2.6.36 kernel, yet retained in other Asuswrt-Merlin kernels?

Respectfully,

I attempted to add an iptables rule that uses -m socket, but it fails as though the Asuswrt-Merlin Linux-2.3.36 kernel wasn't compiled with CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_TARGET_TPROXY support.

Respectfully,

Did you load the module?

Code:
[email protected]:/lib/modules/2.6.36.4brcmarm/kernel/net# modprobe xt_TPROXY
[email protected]:/lib/modules/2.6.36.4brcmarm/kernel/net# lsmod | grep TPROXY
xt_TPROXY                958  0 
nf_tproxy_core          1262  1 xt_TPROXY,[permanent]

@RMerlin

That was the problem. The xt_TPROXY and xt_socket kernel modules weren't loaded. I guess that's what I get for assuming that they were loaded by default.

Thank you for bringing the obvious to my attention.

With Great Respect,


Gary
