HELP: can't initialize iptables table `filter' ????
Sun, 9 Apr 2000 07:52:15 +0200
I've read all of the online documentation but can't really understand it. I
want to masquerade my c able modem connection.
I'm using kernel 2.3.99-pre3 and the April 3 iptables 1.0.
I've built as modules
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22227 Mar 31 21:06 ip_conntrack.o
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3716 Mar 31 21:06 ip_conntrack_ftp.o
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 16884 Mar 31 21:06 ip_tables.o
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2096 Mar 31 21:06 ipt_state.o
and then insmod-ed them all. But then any iptables command just leaves me with
iptables v1.0.0: can't initialize iptables table `filter': No extended target/match by that name
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
For the masquerading, I was planning to use the following (based on the NAT
iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -o eth1 -j MASQUERADE
eth1 is the network card connected to the modem.
I expect I should just be playing with this kind of technology if I don't
understand it, but I want to prepare for the 2.4 kernels, and also need to use
2.3.x to get my webcam going. ipchains had been working fine for me up until
