Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2003-01-23 11:34:57 EST
Please consider the future inclusion of Divert Sockets to the iptables package
(and to ipchains, and kernel). Divert sockets look fairly cool.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-23 20:51:15 EST
This would need to be in the kernel first before we'd ship it in iptables.
Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2004-09-28 14:47:49 EDT
Well, the divert sockets code went nowhere fast. The homepage is a
404, the sourceforge site hasn't seen any updates since 2003, there is
no 2.6 version.

Thankfully, it looks like Netlink Sockets will provide equivalent
functionality. Closing this one as WONTFIX.
