Re: /sbin/ipchains: host/network `domain.name' not found - SOLVED
Sorry to be posting a followup to my own question, but I solved this.
I was using ipmasq to set up rules which needed to resolve external
domain names before actually allowing external traffic... A bit stupid,
but there it is.
Putting my rules in post-processing rules files:
which are executed after the internal and external input files in which I
initially put them:
