Unhappy Can't create file using echo: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_change


Hi,

I trying to create a file using echo and redirection: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_change by this command:


# echo 1024 65000 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_change
--------
An error message is displayed:

sh: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_change: No such file or directory
--------
I even tried to use cat and vi, but the seems like i can't create the file...


Can anyone help me resolve this problem?

Unhappy

thanx crm, but the file does not yet exist, so it still gives me error message that the file does exist using touch command... i tried creating that file in my local directory then tried copying that file to that directory, but the shell tells me that cannot create regular file. What should i do?


thanks

im having a similar experience trying to recreate the problem.

i think the issue uis that 'proc' is more of a image of your running PROCesses then an actual directory - perhaps theres another way to achieve the desired result?
