|Subject:||[PATCH 00/19] netfilter: IPv6 NAT|
|Date:||Thu, 9 Aug 2012 22:08:44 +0200|
The following patches contain an updated version of IPv6 NAT against Linus' current tree. The series is organized as follows: - Patches 01-03 contain bugfixes for SIP helper bugs/regressions present in the current kernel - Patches 04-06 improve conntrack fragmentation handling, the IPv6 parts are also a precondition for IPv6 NAT - Patches 07 and 08 prepare the current NAT code for conversion to an address family independant core, but contain no functional changes - Patch 09 adds the address family independant NAT core and converts the existing IPv4-only NAT code to an AF-specific module - Patches 10 and 11 add some infrastructure for IPv6 NAT - Patch 12 adds IPv6 NAT support - Patches 13-15 add IPv6 specific NAT targets - Patches 16-19 add some IPv6-capable ports of existing NAT helpers - Patch 19 is independant of the IPv6 NAT code and adds support for stateless IPv6 prefix translation, just to relieve my conscience ;) Since the last posting numerous bugs have been fixed, I don't remember all of them, the more important ones include: - automatic NAT module loading in ctnetlink - address selection when mapping to IPv6 ranges - handling of IPv6 fragments - NAT handling of ICMPv6 error messages Besides implementing IPv6 NAT, there are no known bugs left. Userspace patches will follow shortly. The entire patchset is also available at git://github.com/kaber/nf-nat-ipv6.git master Comments, questions and test results welcome.
