iptables-restore error "cannot initializetable 'filter'"
I've recently installed Yellow Dog Linux (obviously not Red Hat, but there's no forum for it, and I think they're fairly closely related) on my beige PowerMac G3.
When I boot, iptables-restore reports the follow error message:
"Applying iptables firewall rules: iptables-restore v1.2.9: iptables-restore: unable to initializetable (sic) 'filter'
Error occurred at line: 3
Try 'iptables-restore -h' or 'iptables-restore --help' for more information."
My iptables file is system-generated; I haven't touched it. For reference, here is the file:
# Firewall configuration written by system-config-securitylevel # Manual customization of this file is not recommended. *filter :INPUT ACCEPT [0:0] :FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0] :OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0] :RH-Firewall-1-INPUT - [0:0] -A INPUT -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -A FORWARD -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type any -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 50 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 51 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited COMMITCode:
