Description Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2004-06-22 12:48:28 UTC
Description of problem:
I noticed that "ip6tables -j REJECT" didn't work. Then I compared my
FC2 /lib/iptables with a Debian Sarge and found Debian has a lot more
modules installed.

Probably not all of these are required, but at least REJECT should be
available as a standard target, so I figure this is a bug.


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install iptables-ipv6
2. Run "ip6tables -A OUTPUT -j REJECT"

Actual Results:
ip6tables v1.2.9: Couldn't load target
`REJECT':/lib/iptables/libip6t_REJECT.so: cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory

Try `ip6tables -h' or 'ip6tables --help' for more information.

The build environment of iptables does not build them by default. The
netfilter core team desired ip6t_REJECT unstable. Please have a look
at the CURRENT_ISSUES file:

    IPv6 REJECT target fix
        - important, it's a pity that it's still broken

I think we have to wait till there is a working version.

Just an FYI, here's the current status (see table entry "REJECT"):
