Hello All,

I have just install debian, but can't find the location where the IPTable

Can any one tell me where I can find this file So I can edit it

Many Thanks,


As root, if you give the command:
$> iptables -nvL

you will notice that the three chains, INPUT, OUTPUT and FORWARD are all set to ACCEPT. In other words, you do not have a firewall unless you explicitly install one. You can either install a firewall package, e.g. firestarter, or make your own rules and load them at startup.
