Description Mike Chambers 2001-06-02 00:05:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
The portsentry.conf file has no entry for iptables in the "KILL_ROUTE" 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install portsentry
2.edit portsentry.conf
3.Look in Dropping Routes section

Actual Results:  # New ipchain support for Linux kernel version 2.102+
KILL_ROUTE="/sbin/ipchains -I input -s $TARGET$ -j DENY -l"

Expected Results:  # New iptables support for Linux kernel version 2.4+
KILL_ROUTE="/sbin/iptables -I INPUT -s $TARGET$ -j DROP -l"

Additional info:

The expected results may be wrong but that is what I manually change it to 
and it seems to work.

Maybe just needs tweaking or something to work more correctly.

How is it not working? I do notice that you have the "-l" still in there from
ipchains, perhaps you shouldn't do that with iptables and use the "--log-level"
flag instead? (I don't have much experience with iptables yet)


Comment 2 Mike Chambers 2001-06-04 23:59:16 UTC
What I meant is that only "ipchains" is in the config file, nothing for 
iptables.  I changed the ipchains myself manually to iptables so it would work.

Comment 3 Tim Powers 2001-06-05 13:02:35 UTC
Do this was more of an enhancement request than a bug. Sorry for
misunderstanding you. I updated the config file patch to include an iptables
entry (the same as you have in the report).

Thanks for the report. Look for portsentry-1.0-13 in rawhide when rawhide is
updated again. It is moving to the distro from Powertools, so look there instead.
