Description Jos Vos 2003-08-29 17:26:40 EDT
Description of problem:
The ip6tables init script contains various errors.  At one place,
/proc/net/ip_tables_names is used i.s.o. /proc/net/ip6_tables_names.
Furthermore, various commands refer to the "nat" table (-t nat), that does not
exist for IPv6, so these commands fail, which may or may not result in security
problems, as tables are not initialized as expected in all situations.
