This patch solves the issue for me, can be applied to the spec file. Maybe this

patch should be tested and reviewed ;-)

Requesting update with iptables firewall for FC1, FC2, RHEL3. Fedora
aka Rawhide (and the next release FC3) also should be updated. Thank you :)

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2004-08-02 13:17:31 UTC
firewall support is just a hidden feature in rp-pppoe. The user cannot
use it without changing the config file manually.

Yes, the script is still using the old ipchains and needs to be fixed.

I don't think it's really needed to make update for FC1, FC2, RHEL3.

but in any case i will add this fix in FC3. Thanks for your patch.

Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2004-08-02 13:19:53 UTC
Okay, thank you for merging it to rawhide :)
