Iptables & 2.6.16-rcX
iptables has been working perfectly for me for over a year. Just decided to update kernel which for some reason the developers have made iptables a complete mess since 188.8.131.52. Anyway now when I try to run iptables it comes up with this:
Could not open socket to kernel: Operation not permitted
So I went digging around the kernel, enabled a few more things with iptables in the name which all look like they mean the same thing? And now it comes up with the following:
getsockopt failed strangely: No such file or directory
I have browsed through the offending bit of code which gives me no clue as to which file it is looking for, it's just a general error message when it doesn't know itself. Any ideas on how to get this thing working again? It's been driving me crazy for about a week now, Thanks in advance for any clues.
