Broken VPS from Exovian

Dear All,
I just bought a VPS from Exovian, and every since day one iptables was broken and not fixed. What good is a VPS with iptables broken? And what do I do to move to a better VPS deal (I ordered RHL+CPanel, what I got was Fedora + CPanel). Apparentl they say that CPanel does not work with RHL? [They have issues with CPanel and RHL]. Help!!!!!!!!!

>Hi Ravi,
> Have you done this with a VPS before? The IP Tables is coming back with an error
>[root@vps07 cpins]# iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 443 -j REDIRECT --to-port 22
>iptables v1.2.8: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
>Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
>We are installing cPanel right now

Yes, I mean RHEL, but that's not *that* important. As long as I get a machine that works, that is no broken iptables please. I think they'd need to reconfigure their machine, and with a lot of VPS hosted on it, they don't feel like doing it. Am I right?

Hi friendklay,
Please follow up with us on our helpdesk so we can resolve this issue as soon as possible as we have not heard back from you on it. We currently offer cPanel on Fedora as up2date is not needed with fedora. Our datacenter does not currently supply us with up2date accounts for VE's.
