No I only want to execute a script for all packets that are packets
that are going to be sent out of the NIC (after the packets have been
accepted as valid by a firewall). I don't know how to do that. Do you
know what is the last function in the iptables code or the first
function in the NIC driver, that a packet that has been accepted by
the firewall passes before it is sent on the wire? I would then write
some code so that when a call is made to that function, a signal is
raised and it will cause a shell script to execute.
I don't know abt the DoSed command. Do you have any example?

If there is an easier way, please let me know...

MAny thx for the reply.

Warm regards,
