Mistake in iptables example
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:15:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.93: Security Guide
Section 7.6. iptables and Connection Tracking
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ALLOW
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
Thank you for reporting this mistake. You are correct, "ACCEPT" should
be the jump target in the example. The error has been fixed and a
documentation erratum for the error will be published subsequent to
the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
Thanks again for your report.
