  • Hi EZ,

    I solved it , ip_tables and iptable_nat module got loaded automatically and later it was popping up with error

    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name.

    this is coz of 'state' match support kernel module was not loaded , i loaded it with 'modprobe xt_state' command

    now it works fine , just posted this coz might help for someone
