Description Florian Wisser 2001-07-16 08:00:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-7.0.1 i686)

Description of problem:
iptable-restore is not able to restore rulesets written with
iptables-save if there is a rule without a jump target. (rules
to count traffic for example)

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. iptables -I FORWARD 1
2. iptables-save > iptables
3. iptables-restore < iptables
	

Actual Results:  iptables-restore v1.2.2: Unknown arg `-j'
Try `iptables-restore -h' or 'iptables-restore --help' for more
information.


Additional info:

the problem is, that iptables-save writes the following line:
-A FORWARD -j  
instead of this one:
-A FORWARD
which actually works with iptables-restore.
