Re: Iptables and kernel version

root@machine # iptables -D INPUT -s -p icmp -j DROP
iptables v1.2.6a: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does
not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

I've just had the same problem because I had ipchains running --> try to remove ipchains module, and then to "insmod" ip_tables and iptable_filter. It worked just fine for me. And then ipt_LOG if you want some logs (depending on your rules).

Is there any conflict with iptables and this kernel version ?

no, iptables is the packet filtering module for 2.4 kernels.
