Iptables and netfilter is a Linux kernel 2.4+ iptables administration tool. netfilter and iptables provide a Linux kernel framework for stateful and stateless packet filtering, network and port addresss translation, and other IP packet manipulation. The framework is the successor to ipchains.iptables is built on top of netfilter, the packet alteration framework for Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x. It is a major rewrite of its predecessor ipchains, and is used to control packet filtering, Network Address Translation (masquerading, portforwarding, transparent proxying), and special effects such as packet mangling.
