    iptables complaining about No chain/target/match by that name

    I an getting the error "iptables: No chain/target/match by that name" while executing the following command.
    iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 23 -j ACCEPT

    I can see than INPUT chain is already added by dumping "iptables -L". If I execute "iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp" it works but if I use --dport option its complaining. Can anyone please help me.

    What do your rules look like?
    Are you doing stateful packet inspection?
