It depends. But as Robs solution works for you, it looks like you only
need to redirect/forward connections (roughly: PREROUTING -> FORWARD ->
POSTROUTING). You only need nat/OUTPUT for packets, generated on the
firewall itself (roughly: local process -> OUTPUT -> POSTROUTING). If
you need to redirect locally generated packets *and* nat/OUTPUT isn't
compiled - well, yes then you have to compile the module from the kernel
sources (which in this case is simple, because you only have to enable
