I recently upgraded the kernel version on my RedHat Server.
make menuconfig, selected the iptable module.
Rebooted the server and it came up with the new module
# uname -a Linux flexcolo 3.12.8 #2 SMP Mon Jan 20 16:05:45 IST 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Now somehow I am not able run the iptable nat module as it comes up with the below error:-
# iptables -t nat -L
FATAL: Module ip_tables not found.
iptables v1.4.7: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
ip table filter work just fine iptables -t filter -L
Chain INPUT (policy DROP)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT all -- anywhere 172.28.124.0/24
ACCEPT all -- anywhere 192.168.210.0/30
ACCEPT all -- anywhere 192.168.0.0/26
It should be at /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/iptable_nat.ko

Its in the kernel source tree so rebuild your kernel but choose the right options. In fact if you do not have compelling reasons to (patch? and) build your own kernel you probably shouldn't do that and this is one of the reason why.
