    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name.


    I'm trying to write the following rule in the iptable
    iptables -I INPUT -d myipaddres -p tcp --dport 80 -m string --to 70 --algo bm --string '/w00tw00t.' -j DROP
    but I receive the message

    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name.
    What I would like to do is to block all the request from wootwoot that its ip address change continuously

    Thanks in advance

    Are you using Xen, Fedora, or a newer version of Ubuntu? Lots of the chains have been renamed.

    Also, if you have installed any updates that affected kernel modules vs the running kernel you may need to reboot in order to get iptables working again (i ran into this exact issue a couple of weeks ago) :/
