ipchains when the rules fails
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:12 EDT
When there is a problem with the chains rules
Happily prints out an error message and exits. If remotely administering
the box in question this is often bad. The script alss touches the file
in the subsys dir in the failure case. Could this script please be modified
to something like:
if grep -v "^[[:space:]]*#" $IPCHAINS_CONFIG | grep -v
'^[[:space:]]*$' | /sbin/ipchains-restore -p -f
success "Applying ipchains firewall rules"
failure "Applying ipchains firewall rules"
Ive changed the severity to Enhancement request.
Defering for future consideration.
