Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58362
iptables "drop" not working
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
Description of Problem:
i hav Rhat 7.2 "everything" installation.
when i try to drop some iptable rule i get error
libipt_drop.so not found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
IPtables that is shipped with RHat 7.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to drop IPTables rule
Actual Results:libipt_drop.so not found.
Expected Results:should drop that rule
i checked kernel configuration, there all conponents of IPTABLES were
configured as modules
i checked /lib/iptables/ ,there i didnt found libipt_drop.while other .so files
of iptables were present there.
[root@spock root]# iptables -A OUTPUT -d 10.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 -jDROP
Chances are you used -jdrop instead of -jDROP.
DROP is a builtin rule, so the library won't be there.
Please reopen if you can reproduce this with the correct syntax.
Also, the version shipped with 7.2 had a couple of bugs (nothing like this
though), you really want to install the errata package we released some weeks ago.
