IPchains and IRC DCC file transfer problems
I have a Red Hat box with a 2.4.9-ac12 patched kernel running otherwise smoothly (ie. IRC, ICQ work fine) but the FTP and IRC file transfers do not work. i've tried searching help for this problem and tried all sorts of stuff but I think what I am missing are the ip_masq_irc/ftp modules that you need to modprobe.
I've tried locating them but there's no such thing as a /lib/modules/2.2.9-ac12/ipv4 directory. Can I make the transfers work with IPChains WITHOUT the masq modules?
I know I should probably update to IPTables in stead of IPChains... if that is the case, can I just fetch the package, install it and use it as I do ipchains now? Here's the part of my rc.local file concerning the masquerade:
echo "1" >> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syncookies
echo "1" >> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_dynaddr
echo "1" >> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
/sbin/ipchains -P forward DENY
/sbin/ipchains -P output ACCEPT
/sbin/ipchains -P input ACCEPT
/sbin/ipchains -M -S 604800 604800 604800
/sbin/ipchains -A forward -s 192.168.0.0/24 -d 0.0.0.0/0 -j MASQ
Edit: Well.. i found the ipv4 stuff on the net, can I just use it as is and how do I compile the stuff?
Thanks in advance!
