Exclamation ipchains -=> error: "Protocol not available"


Yes, the Subject says, it all.
Well, not really all:

If I run the following command:
/sbin/ipchains -A forward -i ppp0 -j MASQ
I'll get an error:
ipchains: Protocol not available
?????

oh, I'm using the kernel 2.4.7

From what I gather, ipchains is being abandoned in favor of iptables. Is suse rpm-based? If so, it might be you don't have ipchains installed.

$ rpm -q ipchains
$ rpm -q iptables

But, I think you ought to learn about iptables as, from what I have read, it is better and not much different in terms of configuring than ipchains.

Just a thought... Isn't PPP something that has to be compiled into the kernel(or as module)?? You might verify that you have support for it. That sounds like what the error message is saying..IMHO.
