Description Konrad Zak 2002-10-11 11:31:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; pl-PL; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

Description of problem:
Resetting built-in chains to the default ACCEPT policy with 'service iptables
stop' causes 3 of 5 chains from 'mangle' table to stay in previous set default
policy, like i.e. DROP.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.iptables -t mangle -P INPUT DROP
2.iptables -t mangle -P FORWARD DROP
3.iptables -t mangle -P POSTROUTING DROP
4.service iptables stop
5.iptables -t mangle -L

Actual Results:  3 of 5 built-in chains in 'mangle' table do not get back to
default ACCEPT policy when stopping iptables service. 

Expected Results:  'mangle' table built-in chains default policy should be set
to ACCEPT in /etc/init.d/iptables. I modified /etc/init.d/iptables script to
resolve problem. I put link to fixed script in url field of bug form.

Additional info:

the same applies to ip6tables (iptables-ipv6 rpm package).
under file name ip6tables instead of iptables in url I provided you'll find
fixed /etc/init.d/ip6tables script.

Red Hat Linux 8.0 is affected, too.

While updating my iptables packages for Psyche and Valhalla, I added patched
iptables initscripts to bug #76367.
