Ipchains on Linux 2.6.5 (Fedora Core 2)
I'm challenging out of my operating systems class in school and I asked the professor for a project.
The guidelines we're a vanilla flavored LAMP server with SSH, and Telnet and FTP that denies internet connections for the last two daemons.
I decided to take it a step further and got another professor to hand me a copy of the (broken) firewall.
The neat thing about it is it uses ipchains instead of the current iptables.
And yes, I'd like to use iptables, but I'm going with the school's standard because while it is broken, it's not terrible.
So please, purists, lets not deviate off track asking me why I don't just use iptables.
At any rate, I know I need to patch the 2.6 kernel to allow ipchains
I know iptables and ipchains cannot coexist.
And I'll need to build ipchains from source.
All not a problem.
However, can someone point me in the right direction with getting the kernel ready for ipchains?
