Description Tom Diehl 2001-10-25 20:40:44 UTC
Description of Problem:When trying to load the log-level of notice in an 
iptables rule iptables complains that this is not valid. Changing to log 
level 5 works. The man page states the following:
 --log-level level
              Level of logging (numeric or see syslog.conf(5)). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.2.3-1

How Reproducible:Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the rule with LOg turned on with --log-level set to notice.

Actual Results:iptables gives an error that loglevel notice is invalid

Expected Results:Should load the rule.

Additional Information:These rules were working for a long time on a 7.0 
machine. Upon upgrade they refused to load.

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2001-10-26 05:24:17 UTC
iptables-1.2.3/extensions/libipt_LOG.c -> parse_level(..) is bad.

But this is fixed with iptables-1.2.4.

Am I correct that there is no official redhat fix?

Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2001-10-26 06:21:42 UTC
