    Kmyfirewall help


    Hi, I recently replaced Firestarter with Kmyfirewall on my Gentoo system. However, there are multiple errors when I try to run the script:

    Clearing iptables (created by KMyFirewall)...
    Error: FATAL: Module ip_tables not found.
    Error: iptables v1.3.8: can't initialize iptables table `mangle': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)

    Error: iptables v1.3.8: can't initialize iptables table `mangle': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)

    Done.
    Starting iptables (created by KMyFirewall)...
    Loading needed modules...
    Error: FATAL: Module ip_tables not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module ip_conntrack not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module ipt_LOG not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module ipt_limit not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module ipt_state not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module ip_conntrack_ftp not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module ip_conntrack_irc not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module iptable_filter not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module iptable_nat not found.
    Error: FATAL: Module iptable_mangle not found.
    Done.
    Create custom chains... Done.
    Settup Rules in Table FILTER:
    Create Rules for Chain: INPUT
    Error: getsockopt failed strangely: No such file or directory
    Setting up Rule: SMB_tcp FAILED!

    Execution failed
    Exit(Code): 1

    I understand this means I have missing modules in my kernel, but I can't find them. Any similar to those shown have not worked for me. Can anyone tell me which modules I need to enable? I'm running kernel 2.6.20

    Many thanks in advance

    in your kernel, you probably do not have checked the netfilter on network options.

    you can recompile you kernel with iptables support... see Setting Up a Network Firewall
    and http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermai...007-August.txt

    for more details
