I'm trying to setup some firewalling rules using the endoshield script.
This is on a DEC Alpha running Debian Woody with the 2.4.20 kernel. I'm
fully updated based on apt-get.
When I run the script I get:
iptables v1.2.6a: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables
who? (do you need to insmod?)
This happens whatever I do to /etc/init.d/iptables. -- halt, stop,
start, etc. Actually, "start" doesn't work, complains about an "unknown
If I try to modprobe ip_tables, I get the same error. If I try rmmod,
I'm told it isn't loaded, and indeed, it doesn't show with lsmod.
SAny advice greatly appreciated. I'd like to shutdown all the ports that
don't need to be open. Thanks in advance.
