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

should be

iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT

Comment 1 John Ha 2005-01-18 17:31:31 UTC
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.
