Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2003-01-23 16:34:57 UTC
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 2003-01-24 01:51:15 UTC
This would need to be in the kernel first before we'd ship it in iptables.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2004-09-28 18:47:49 UTC
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.
