I've been very committed to ipchains and now iptables.
I used LRP in the past to setup firewalls and such.
Now I have my set of Iptable rules set. I want to start them automatically on bootup and check that networking is running, if it is not, then halt. This will assure me that the rules will always be applied or no boot.
I am running Linux Rehat with 2.4 kernel.
Do anybody have an ideas
