+This target is only valid in the
+.B nat
+table, in the
+chains, and user-defined chains which are only called from those
+chains. It specifies that the destination address of the packet
+should be modified (and all future packets in this connection will
+also be mangled), and rules should cease being examined. It takes the
+following options:
+\fB\-\-to\-destination\fP [\fIipaddr\fP[\fB\-\fP\fIipaddr\fP]][\fB:\fP\fIport\fP[\fB\-\fP\fIport\fP]]
+which can specify a single new destination IP address, an inclusive
+range of IP addresses. Optionally a port range,
+if the rule also specifies one of the following protocols:
+\fBtcp\fP, \fBudp\fP, \fBdccp\fP or \fBsctp\fP.
+If no port range is specified, then the destination port will never be
+modified. If no IP address is specified then only the destination port
+will be modified.
+In Kernels up to 2.6.10 you can add several \-\-to\-destination options. For
+those kernels, if you specify more than one destination address, either via an
+address range or multiple \-\-to\-destination options, a simple round-robin (one
+after another in cycle) load balancing takes place between these addresses.
+Later Kernels (>= 2.6.11-rc1) don't have the ability to NAT to multiple ranges
+If option
+is used then port mapping will be randomized (kernel >= 2.6.22).
+Gives a client the same source-/destination-address for each connection.
+This supersedes the SAME target. Support for persistent mappings is available
+from 2.6.29-rc2.
+IPv6 support available since Linux kernels >= 3.7.
