Description Pete Zaitcev 2014-02-14 23:51:56 UTC
Description of problem:

After adding a service file for OSPF, IP works, but IPv6 prints
error "ip6tables v1.4.19.1: unknown header `89' specified".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a service file, cat <<EOF >/etc/firewall/services/ospf.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <description>Link-state routing protocol</description>
  <port protocol="ospf" port=""/>
  <!-- <destination ipv6="::/0"/> -->
  <module name=""/>
This is a universal file that enables both OSPF and OSPF v6.

2. firewall-cmd --reload
3. firewall-cmd --add-service=ospf

Actual results:

[root@simbelmyne quagga]# firewall-cmd --add-service=ospf
Error: COMMAND_FAILED: '/sbin/ip6tables -A IN_public_allow -t filter -m ipv6header --header ospf -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT' failed: ip6tables v1.4.19.1: unknown header `89' specified
Try `ip6tables -h' or 'ip6tables --help' for more information.

Expected results:


Additional info:

It's some kind of difference between v4 and v6, the v4 works fine.

A workaround currently used:

firewall-cmd --direct --add-rule ipv6 filter INPUT 1 -p ospf -j ACCEPT
