old iptables script not working with new install
I have an old iptables script (?) that I got from iptablesrocks.org, which works fine with my antique Fedora 4 system.
I transferred it to a brand new RHEL 5.3 install, but when I go to use 'iptables-restore < firewall_script' it throws a 'no command specified' error at the very last line of the script, which I have never seen before. The script works fine on Fedora 10 and RHEL 5.1, I am pretty sure it even works fine on RHEL 5.2.
Could it be that the fact that I am using 64-bit Linux for the first time, and need to do something different?
Here is the script:

The script works fine for me on CentOS 5.3 with iptables version 1.3.5. Are you sure there's no special characters at the end of the script?

I thought of that, so I loaded it up into emacs and 'deleted' anything that might have been at the end of the line there. Maybe I'll do every line, although it's only complaining about the very last line.

It turned out to be the second last line, although iptables-restore complained about the last line.
Echoes of COBOL debugging! LOL

Glad you got it working.
Next time, it might be easier to simply run dos2unix on the script.

I don't know if that would help as this file has never touched a non-Linux system.
