Target extensions - DNAT

For the DNAT target extension, we can read: "DNAT is valid only as a part of the POSTROUTNG chain in the nat table". In fact, DNAT is valid only as a part of the PREROUTNG chain in the nat table.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct. It should be PREROUTING.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The errata submission is correct. vi and xtrace should be indented like the other -o modes: -o [mode] allexport [ all of p.642 ] vi xtrace +p -p
