    doubt on __be32 and __be16


    Hello All,

    I am a newbie linux kernel developer and excuse me if my question look really stupid

    I am trying to implement a NAT module in netfilter (nothing fancy, a very simple and primitive version, just to learn)..

    One thing I don't understand is how to convert my integer (ip) and short (for port) to and from __be32 and __be16?

    can someone help me with understanding of how __be32 and __be16 data type works? Thanks a lot.
