    You might take a look at

    $ man iptables
    QUEUE means to pass the packet to userspace (if supported by the kernel).

    $ sed -n -e '1874,1876p' /usr/src/linux-2.4.0/Documentation/
    Netfilter has the ability to queue packets to user space: the
    netlink device can be used to access them using this driver.

    $ lynx /usr/share/doc/iptables/html/packet-filtering-HOWTO-7.html
