how to load ipt_REDIRECT.ko

Hello Guys,

I am faced with an issue loading this above module into the kernel , I have tried running the command for which it returned it the error as follows

root@server [/etc/csf]# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.3.1.el5PAE/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_REDIRECT.ko
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.3.1.el5PAE/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_REDIRECT.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module

Please can you advice more on this. Thank you

try: modprobe ipt_REDIRECT
This should load dependencies first.

But actually, iptabls command should be capable of loading required modules by itself, why You need it to load be hand?
