FYI: the random option is documented in the manual page of iptables.
This target is only valid in the nat table, in the PREROUTING and OUT-
PUT chains, and user-defined chains which are only called from those
chains. It redirects the packet to the machine itself by changing the
destination IP to the primary address of the incoming interface
(locally-generated packets are mapped to the 127.0.0.1 address).
This specifies a destination port or range of ports to use:
without this, the destination port is never altered. This is
only valid if the rule also specifies -p tcp or -p udp.
If option --random is used then port mapping will be randomized
(kernel >= 2.6.22).
