    Help needed with iptables -m multiport

    I am trying to use multiport in my iptables script but have been recieving the following error

    Code:
    iptables v1.2.3: Couldn't load match `multiport`: /lib/iptables/libipt.multiport.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
    The file is there. I have tried compling iptables into the kernel and as a module and get the error message either way. Any suggestions?

    it's not complaining about /lib/iptables/libipt.multiport.so not being there, the error is coming from that libipt.multiport.so library and it probably can't find another library. so u need to find out what library file ur missing

    run this:
    ldd /lib/iptables/libipt.multiport.so

    it'll give u a list of every library that libipt.multiport.so needs and where it's located. libraries that are needed but not found are listed as well, but instead of giving the path to the lib it'll say something like "not found"
    then u know what library u still need
