netfilter.org is home to the software of the packet filtering framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel series. Software commonly associated with netfilter.org is iptables.|
Software inside this framework enables packet filtering, network address [and port] translation (NA[P]T) and other packet mangling. It is the re-designed and heavily improved successor of the previous Linux 2.2.x ipchains and Linux 2.0.x ipfwadm systems.
This mailinglist is not really a means of contacting the netfilter/iptables project, but rather a way of the netfilter people contacting and informing their users about new releases, bugfixes, potential security issues.
We strongly advise all netfilter/iptables users to subscribe this list. It is very low volume, usually only one message every couple of months.
