Description Need Real Name 2001-10-27 01:42:06 UTC
Description of Problem: I am using Redhat 7.1 w/2.4.9-6 kernel and all upgraded rpms (as of 10/25/01). Can not get masquerading to work in ipchains with a dialup connection through ppp0. I have tried everything that I can think of, but nothing works. Currently I have ipchains turned of in chkconfig and have the fillowing in rc.local: modprobe ipchains >/dev/null 2>&1 || exit 0 echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_dynaddr /sbin/ipchains -F input /sbin/ipchains -F forward /sbin/ipchains -F output /sbin/ipchains -P forward DENY /sbin/ipchains -A forward -i ppp0 -j MASQ <snip> Now, if I do not include my local IP in the hosts file, I can dialup and get assigned an IP dynamically from the remote access server. I can verify this with ifconfig and can ping out. If I include my local host IP and name in hosts, then when I dialup, I get the local IP in ifconfig and can not ping out. This tells me that MASQ in ipchains is NOT working. I did upgrade ipchains to 1.3.10, but it didn't work before I upgraded. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ipchains 1.3.10 How Reproducible: Out of the box Redhat 7.1 Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual Results: Expected Results: Additional Information:
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-10-27 02:04:35 UTC
In this non-working setup, please attach the output of the following commands: lsmod ipchains -L -v --line-numbers ifconfig uname -a rpm -q ipchains

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-10-27 04:34:05 UTC
The reason I got the 192.168.0.0/24 for my source in ipchains -L -v is because I added a -s switch to my test in rc.local, i.e.: /sbin/ipchains -A forward -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 -d 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 -j MASQ But this didn't help. I didn't expect it to, but I wanted to try.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2001-10-28 01:59:20 UTC
Yeah, it has been 24 hours on this easily reproducible problem and no solution. I didn't think anyone would/could address this. So much for being "quite capable of maintaining my own packages..." you're welcome.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2001-10-28 22:59:46 UTC
Arjan, I've got a clean 7.1 install set up here, with IP masquerading configured. I've got all 7.1 erratum applied. IP masquerading works fine for me in this test setup - ie: I cannot reproduce any ipchains IP masquerade problems that this polite fellow is reporting. Before closing the bug as NOTABUG, I thought I would get you to give a second opinion on it, as the kernel is involved. Your thoughts?
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2001-10-28 23:06:21 UTC
If you can get ipchains to masquerade, then could you please send this person who does not care about being polite a copy of your ipchains rules? I assume that you set you system to have an internal network on eth0, you local IP in the hosts file, and internal nameserver for you local network, and connected to an access server via a dialup?
Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-10-28 23:12:32 UTC
Only a subset of IP masquerading works with ipchains, you'll need to switch to iptables to improve the setup (and have it work useful). Bugzilla is not a support channel - I suggest you ask on mailing lists for your particular setup.
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2001-10-29 05:45:57 UTC
Trond, As you know, ipchains and iptables can not both be active in the kernel simultaneously. I have not been able to install Redhat 7.1 without installing ipchains. That is, if during initial install you select not to install a firewall, ipchains gets installed in the kernel anyway and then you can not install iptables. How do you recommend that I install iptables with Redhat 7.1? Or should I just go to 7.2? Furthermore, what you are telling me here is that ip masquerading does not work with ipchains, is that correct?

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:10:4B:6A:2B:04 inet addr:192.168.1.5 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 then /sbin/ipchains -A forward -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 -d 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 -j MASQ You've got a subnet 192.168.1.*, and you're masquerading 192.168.0.*. This is not expected to work! Make sure that your network subnets match throughout your network. Masquerading should work fine with ipchains, but iptables is the preferred way to drive 2.4 kernels: much of the new firewalling functionality in 2.4 is only available via iptables.
