comment How do I show the actions that installing a .deb package will take?
The -e option will create a DEBIAN directory with the control file and the various script files that will be run. postinst is usually very interesting as it will be executed after the package is successfully installed.

comment Redirect incoming packets to loopback
TPROXY doesn't help me because you can't use it on packets that aren't being forwarded. I ended up hacking together a way to make the service listen on the correct interface.

comment Redirect incoming packets to loopback
So once a packet goes through POSTROUTING to another network card does it then enter the PREROUTING chain for the second card? Is loopback just another network interface as far as iptables is concerned?

comment Redirect incoming packets to loopback
Without -o the packets will be redirected to the network interface they came in, which isn't what I want. -o doesn't work because REDIRECT doesn't support this usage, so what should I be using?
