Hello,

this patch on the man page unifies the IPv4 and IPv6 entries of the 
MASQUERADE target and updates the list of protocols valid for port mapping.

Though there's no error thrown, if -p is used with --to-ports,
the !portok error message does not talk about icmp,
and I got no definite answer yet, and I don't think it does icmp type 
conversion, I choose to not put the icmp protocol into the list.
Please correct me on that subject, if I'm wrong.

Also please ignore the previous patch for MASQUERADE and REDIRECT.

Best regards

Mart

I don't think we support ICMP masquerading.
