Problem with ROUTE target
Hi all,

i'm using kernel and iptables 1.3.7. I have patched it with
patch-o-matic in order to have the ROUTE target but it doesn't work:

root@linux:~ $ iptables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -d -j ROUTE --oif tun0
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name

root@linux:~ $ ll /lib/iptables/ | grep ROUTE
12 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 8216 Jul 26 17:55

root@linux:~ $ iptables -j ROUTE --help
iptables v1.3.7

Usage: iptables -[AD] chain rule-specification [options]
iptables -[RI] chain rulenum rule-specification [options]
iptables -D chain rulenum [options]
iptables -[LFZ] [chain] [options]
iptables -[NX] chain
iptables -E old-chain-name new-chain-name
iptables -P chain target [options]
iptables -h (print this help information)
ROUTE target v1.11 options:
--oif ifname Route packet through `ifname' network interface
--iif ifname Change packet's incoming interface to `ifname'
--gw ip Route packet via this gateway `ip'
--continue Route packet and continue traversing the
rules. Not valid with --iif or --tee.
--tee Duplicate packet, route the duplicate,
continue traversing with original packet.
Not valid with --iif or --continue.

root@linux:~ $ lsmod
Module Size Used by
ipt_ROUTE 3760 0

root@linux:~ $ iptables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -d -j ROUTE
iptables v1.3.7: ROUTE target: oif, iif or gw option required
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.

I don't really understand why it doesn't work because it displays help
message and it fail if i don't give good arguments when running
iptables with ROUTE target.

What can i do to find where my problem is ?

Thanks a lot for your help.
