I have a firewall which allows ESTABLISHED,RELATED packets on INPUT, and port 53/udp on OUTPUT. Now, if I query for a DNS name, the packet leaves the machine, but the reply is usually dropped: [INPUT]: IN=ppp0 OUT= MAC= SRC=184.108.40.206 DST=220.127.116.11 LEN=68 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=58 ID=9949 PROTO=UDP SPT=53 DPT=16468 LEN=48 Here are the relevant rules: -A INPUT -m conntrack --ctstate RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -m conntrack --ctstate INVALID -j DROP -A INPUT -m limit --limit 3/min --limit-burst 10 -j LOG --log-prefix "[INPUT]: " -P INPUT DROP I always have to add specific udp sport rules for all nameservers, which is a pain, and which should not be required. What am I doing wrong? (Note that I get the same results with '-m state' instead of '-m ctstate').
