Description Josh Gooding 2002-06-06 22:09:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
IPtables rules work however sometimes they just stop working (even though 
iptables is still running). Doing an iptable -L shows all the rules are still 
there. To resolve the issue the rules have to be 
flushed /etc/sysconfig/iptables deleted, networking restarted and the iptables 
rules re-added. This is happening on a lot of our servers.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
There is no way i have found to reproduce the problem. It just seems to happen 
randomly after the servers have been running for a while.

This is almost certainly not related to the userland iptables tools (they just 
control the kernel iptables implementation).
Comment 2 Brian Brock 2002-06-10 19:58:56 EDT
(QA contact changed to reflect package change)

We need kernel version and architecture to help in the debugging, if you can
give the output of `uname -a`, that would help (apologies in advance if more
info is needed).  Also, how are you detecting the failure?  (new entries in
logfiles?  tcpdump?)
