I'm trying to set up nftables to masquerade source addresses on the AXC F 2152.

I am able to add the nat table, and also the postrouting chain, to the nft configuration. However I cannot get anything like the following command to work:

nft add rule nat postrouting masquerade

In all cases I've tried, I get the following:

Error: Could not process rule: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Martin,


Just for reference to others, as you know the answer already :)


The current kernel doesn't include NFT_CHAIN_NAT_IPV4 (and 6) module, hence no NAT features are available at this moment. Hopefully it will be included somewhere in the coming releases.
