Mart Frauenlob - April 10, 2013, 4:30 p.m.
Hello,

this patch renames libipt_REDIRECT.man to libxt_REDIRECT.man thus 
informing about the IPv6 version.
Also the list of valid protocols for port mapping is updated to:
tcp, udp, dccp and sctp.

I hope the address provided for IPv6 localhost ::1 is correct?

Best regards

Mart
