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?

the user who is compiling knetfilter has not iptables in his path

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.

Re: documentation...
Give users the option to resolve the ipnumbers to hostnames with some commentary that it can be slow if the dns is busy / ofline. Maybe let the user set the timeout ?

documentation...
I do need help for documentation.
My first problem is that, not being english, I have difficoulties to write some good documentation stuff.
My second problem is that as the coder, I am quite busy in updates and bug fixes, and I have difficoulties, since I
am quite alone to find the time for user documentation.

I am interested about your first remark. I never saw knetfilter stop while executing some command. It could take some time to list rules of something else, but this is not a knetfilter bug, since it tries to revolve numeric addresses.
Infact I do manage just numeric addresses, but they are resolved to give the host names for the rules listing or similar. If your DNS cannot resolve some address, knetfilter has to timeout to go to next rule and so on.
Should I avoid this, and give just numeric haddresses?

Nice proggy, though...
1) it often seems to block, especially with the interface probing and the iptables rules listing
2) heavily lacks documentation and (perhaps even more important) a rapid online set of tips. If I am to remember the entire iptables man by heart, I can't see much of a utility for a graphical frontend.
3) perhaps there could be a "wizzard" to load a pretty much generic set of rules to be further customized. That could save users a lot of hard time, trying to figure out how to get a working firewall without blocking just about every single packet over the network. No, I'm not a user-friendly freak, nor do I consider acceptable idiotic
autoconfigurations ala "low-medium-high-paranoid" that many distros try to promote. What I intend is much like the firestarter's (a gnome prog.) configuration. However the latter as a whole program has a lot of inadequacies as it isnt as flexible nor as stable as knetfilter.
In any case, nice work!

Loocking for someone to implement traffic shaping.
I am actually looking for someone to create a

window where it sould be possible to manage

traffic shaping using tradition traffic shaper.

This should not be so difficoult to implement, but

i would like to get some help about this.
