  • It seems you have no longer authorisation as the requests arrive with the NAT IP and not the original IP. You would have to make an exception to what is NAT(ed). I requested the interfaces to see if you could change the interface of the NAT to the outside, however it seems you only have one ethernet interface. No idea why you are doing NAT at all, and in that respect not easy to help. iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING ! -p tcp --dport 8888 -j MASQUERADE might help. you will have to do beforehand iptables -t nat -F to clean the current rule. – Rui F Ribeiro Dec 21 '15 at 11:06
  • @RuiFRibeiro : i nat all traffic because i install OCSERV and it want nat all traffic,, – Baba Dec 21 '15 at 18:26
