Re: iptables

Apparently, _Tom Allison_, on 06/04/04 06:53,typed:

I had set the table, "mangle" to DROP and didn't realize that everything goes through this table. Since I'm not using NAT I was ignoring that table.

I was taking notes from a book and realized that the guy who wrote it made one mistake. But put all the tables to a default Policy of DROP which isn't really the way to go. IIRC only the table, "filter" should have the default of DROP. Probably to avoid stupid questions on the internet... :)

Perhaps it would more helpful if you also posted to comp.os.linux.networking. I usually get more help there about these issues than here.
