iptables-save counters on builtin chains not restored?
Tue Aug 17 22:18:21 CEST 2004
Seems like I'm studying iptables-save too much tonight...
When fed with the result of iptables-save -c, iptables-restore -c
does not seem to restore counters on chains (I'm not talking about
rules), as I simply cannot find any parsing code for that.
Note that it would make sense only on builtin chains, but not
user-chains, because only builtin chains have a policy, and the
counters are about packets that hit the policy.
Anyway, it doesn't seem to be restored at all, and I suspect an
omission, so... a bug. Can someone confirm?
