What I thought about (the -m string match extension) is not possible, we are in the nat table and only first packet of the "connection" (even if udp) will pass through this table. So we cannot check all packets of same connection and deviate just one. You could check the match extension string (-m string). Note also that the DNAT ...
To match string in [acket content You can use "--string [!] string" if it compiled in Your kernel. But there no wildchar and I don't found way to use hex.
