Provides the latest version of nft command-line utility with the intention of replacing outdated and buggy packages provided by mainline Linux distributions. For documentation on how to use nftables see

You may want to create a system-wide alias:

snap alias nftables-pk.nft nft

Quick example (simple packet counter, not hooked to real traffic):

nft add table inet main
nft add chain inet main input
nft add rule inet main input counter accept
nft list ruleset

If you use snapd older than 2.41 you will need the following after installation:

snap connect nftables-pk:network-control

Remember to update your nftables scripts to point to /snap/bin/nft and move your scripts from /etc/nftables to /var/snap/nftables-pk/common.

Since this snap is fully confined, configuration files must be placed in /var/snap/nftables-pk/common.
