I have a question about makeing a new chain or better yet, a how to question.
THe way I understand it each packet is compared to every rule you have from
top to bottom in waht ever chain it is in unless it matches a drop or accept
then it is forwarded or what ever.
well here is my issue. I need to be able to add rules on the fly with out
reloading all the firewall rules every time. Becaus ethe very last chain in
my script is a forward all. Do to the nature of our bussiness I have to run
an accept all the deny the bad stuff versus a deny all and only open used
basicaly I have
I need to be able to add rules on the fly right above the accept all.
I thought I seen mention some where of adding in rules anywhere in that
sequence using a rule number or some thing like that.
