ok , im having a bit more luck with my iptables project, but now that i have found something i like, how do i save it so that it initiates when the computer boots up? Where does it saves to? if it starts when i boot up, shouldn't it be in a run level system file? And therefore, i should be able to set up different sets of rules when on different run levels? anyway, background on me... im running red hat 9... 2.4 kernel
any help would be appreciated.... ive been digging everywhere for this stuff
I'm not experienced with iptables, but don't you just issue an iptables-save?
P.S. What's the deal with the poll? :?
ive found the iptables-save but i'd like to know how it works. where is the iptables stuff saved at.... and i take you are saying that saves my rules.... i am rather new at this.
i'll try it out./ thanks. .. you may hear from me again
the poll is random
i had some discussions with friends, thought it would be interesting to see the results.
any more feedback would be helpful
I told you I didn't know much about iptables: it seems that iptables-save is used to back up the file so that you can use iptables-restore to bring it back in case you hoop something while testing. Not exactly what you were looking for, so I apologize. But hey, we're both learning something here.
Second attempt - is there a config file for iptables in your /etc/sysconfig directory? If not, use the iptables-save command to create a file here of your iptables rules (call it iptables), and the system should use it when booting...
I just put my iptables rules in a shell script and execute it from my /etc/conf.d/local.start.
