knetfilter

Knetfilter is a KDE frontend to iptables. It is used with Linux 2.4 to manage the functionality of netfilter. Knetfilter lets you set up most common firewall configurations, as well as perform more sophisticated management of a complex firewall. It is also possible to use an integrated interface to tcpdump and nmap.

            RHEL4 build problem?
            Have knetfilter-3.5.1 on CentOS4.4

            unfortunately, when I make

            # rpmbuild -tb knetfilter-3.5.1.tar.gz

            it makes a lot of errors during creating result package and stops

            Could you please fix this spec file?

            Re: Problem installing
            solved in 3.3.1 (my mistake, usualli iptables are

            somewhere else)

            Problem installing
            When I do ./configure I get the following error at the end:

            checking for iptables... not found

            configure: error: No iptables found.

            yet iptables are there (version v1.2.8, in /sbin)

            I am using Fedora core 1.

            Do you know what the problem is?

            Re: documentation...
            Actually reverse resolution is not done anymore as default, and it is optional, if users do want it and they know their DNS works for every ip address.
            This is the new default I will use for every monitor.
            About inserting rules, you should use ip, not hostnames.
