Hello, how are you guys?
So I tried to search about this issue and see a lot of people suffering from the same thing (usually on VPS / OpenVZ)

So like everybody, I am too suffering issues with these 2 modules in CSF and I tried one for all to solve the issue.
I talk with my hosting and we get inside the recommendation of the forum:

this the link the developer provides to people "how to compile the missing module":

Now... this thread is from 2007!!!!
this guy didn't think about updating the menu and not even OpenVZ...
I look over the forum, more than 100 tickets about the same issue with the same module missing...
is not coincident.

I open a ticket by myself too:


This forum has abounded...
and I am sure if someone even knows what to do he will not reply to you there...

I sure someone here may be found to this solution from 2007 huh :)
have someone here succeed maybe deal with and install these 2 stoped modules? ( iptable_nat/ipt_REDIRECT , iptable_nat/ipt_DNAT )


The Test in CSF Firewall:
Testing ip_tables/iptable_filter...OK
Testing ipt_LOG...OK
Testing ipt_multiport/xt_multiport...OK
Testing ipt_REJECT...OK
Testing ipt_state/xt_state...OK
Testing ipt_limit/xt_limit...OK
Testing ipt_recent...OK
Testing xt_connlimit...OK
Testing ipt_owner/xt_owner...OK
Testing iptable_nat/ipt_REDIRECT...FAILED [Error: iptables v1.4.21: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)] - Required for MESSENGER feature
Testing iptable_nat/ipt_DNAT...FAILED [Error: iptables v1.4.21: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)] - Required for csf.redirect feature

RESULT: CSF will function on this server but some features will not work due to some missing iptables modules [2]



as I said I am not the only one, this issue is over the years:


More than that... if you notice all the problems have the problem with the same iptables version.
v1.4.21....
this is not coincident.
from 2007 until 2021 is a lot of time...
solution someone? some information?

Thanks for all the helpers... :)

Its simply saying that 'nat' table does not exist in IPTABLES.

Do the Following :
Code:
modprobe ip_tables
and add ip_tables at the end of /etc/modules or do this:
Code:
echo 'ip_tables' >> /etc/modules
Let me know if it helps!

I asked to Check this solution if it helps plus Always prefer a KVM Container as Many things in OpenVZ is not supported!

Today all the hosting companies work with OpenVZ to save money... this the reason must move to google cloud.

this you know, i don't know that, and most of the hosting companies do for you the deployment do it with OpenVZ on MWwere containers to save the costs...
I wish i was able to compute by myself, i already succeed to install DNS Server with CSF and everything works fine, all the modules work perfectly, but now i have bigger problems.

the computing is not easy... :(
(interfaces - nic0 - nic1 nic2 and all of this to use nameservers :(

is a nightmare bro, no body want to help me, not cPanel support and not google cloud.

This bro, sorry for my English but this is bull****.


I already talk with the support AND I TOLD THEM:
this is a violation of their own product.

when you install it via Google market place they do not care or notified about configuration (basic):
1. add IP?
2. nameserver?
3. compile with the VPC Networking google cloud offer, the installation is not compiled, and even your video from cPanel is absolutely wrong and this is
not the right way to operate or install Cpanel as should be, let say here:


this youtube is the official page from cPanel and this video show you how to install cPanel on google cloud.

This guy cant generate nameservers with this installation,
or add more IPs if he wants to.

If he will want to do it, he will need to configure a NEW VM INSTANCE and all over again hahaha, this joke really, this is a money machine to convince people
is easy, and possible.
but this is wronggggg and not the right configurations... this is very very bad, and not operate (even if you have an interface, is not say is operating properly)

more than that, maybe the client can be connected only to one server from Cpanel with his external IPs and not even connected to google...
this installation is a money maker and nothing also.

cPanel is a full Panel, all the IPs, nameservers, routes, and CIDR, go from the panel (must pull out everything from cPanel to work properly, of course).

this installation is bull****, sorry again, but this makes me angry,
I own a company by myself,
if I was do something like that, someone was shut me down or compline on me, (BBB, FDA, AND MORE).
but this bull**** to make money of incessant people, these people only want to leave the hosting scam them and actually provide them a broken Cpanel
from google cloud... this is a loop, this is the loop I am into...

As I said... nothing is configured automatically with Cpanel and google cloud with the "click button installation".
as promise in google cloud marketplace (installation in a button click usually average of 30 - 70 dollars for something normal - mid/small.)

Now the funny thing is,
I found how to do it, but is a joke bro, this is not something even the "ADVANCE USER" or even MASTER in cPanel cant do hahaha.
the funny part is the installation, they provide an auto-installation without any current instruction,
the server will maybe go up on an interface,

but all the network via default (even after you pay the money).
is not configured properly, the worst is don't have even a note or AUTO option to create multiple interfaces automatically,
but cPanel don't care about that because they already get the money... in a click button, I told to cPanel support is kind of
a scam and I say it with a very heavy heart because I love cPanel and I think they have very good support.

but when it comes to money.... nobody care.
after you buy the product.
nobody care.

and the worst part after the installation you not even possible the generate IPs if you do not create a NIC0 -NIC1 -NIC2:

THIS IS NOT NORMAL, THE CLICK BUTTON IN GOOGLE MARKET PLACE IS ILLUSION CPANEL DO IN GOOGLE CLOUD AND THIS IS NOT FAIR.
IS A BIG LAY, AND THEY SELL PEOPLE THE PLATFORM BUT IS USEABLE, OR FRIENDLY TO THE USER, THIS IS MUCH MORE THEN COMMEND LINES.
THIS IS THE SHELL OF THE CLOUD, WHEN YOU SELL PRODUCT YOU NEED PUT INSTRUCTION AND TEACH THE COSTUMER / CLIENT HOW TO OPERATE THAT.

I know is long, maybe the English bad, but i did my best.
hope you got my problem and the idea of why cPanel should do something.

Seems like You need Name of a Good Hosting Provider. Go and Try OVH Cloud and Hetzner Cloud and Get rid of these problems!

I think you do not understand what i even want...

try to generate IP CIDR for a nameserver with the new installation of cPanel / WHM you did on google compute...

if you didn't create nic0 nic1 nic2 is will not work for you...

more than that.. if you will configure that wrong (the nic's interfaces)

you will not be able to use all the feature google actually offer...
i think you never build on google compute... you don't actually understand what happened under the scan...
thank btw i appreciate your time.


read this good maybe you understand:



must be configured, and don't have a chance the "Automatic installation" via google store NOT do it for you...
It must be configured on your own.

if you will not do it you will never be able to generate IPs to your VM Instance and cPanel will never find IPs.
