           Summary: Improvement of feedback of missing chain/target/match
           Product: iptables
           Version: 1.4.x
          Platform: x86_64
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: iptables

Invoking <code>sudo iptables -t nat -D PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT
--to-destination</code> returns <code>iptables: No
chain/target/match by that name.
</code>. Returning <code>iptables: No chain/target/match "<the entered name>"
by that name.</code> lowers the barriers for beginners to understand arguments
and their effect and it shouldn't hurt to repeat the chain/target/match. I
experienced this with v1.4.21.
