An error occured getting IPtables status from the command /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables s


i login to webmin and then click on networking, linux firewall and i get this error.

An error occured getting IPtables status from the command /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables status. This probably indicates that your system has been configured to use IPchains instead of IPtables.


what do i do to sort this ?

What distribution and version are you using?

Did you compile the kernel yourself?

What happens if you run:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables status

From the command line?

I'm using Webmin on my ClearOS 5.2 and I can't also edit my firewall rules through Webmin because of this error.
Running
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables status
give me all my firewall rules, so I suppose firewall to be running.

This might be an obvious one to check, but have you checked to see if the ipchains module is installed and running within webmin?

If you can get into the command line, run the command "service ipchains status" see if this returns anything.

iptables replaced ipchains years ago. You certainly can't have both at the same time.
Also, FC2 is years out of date; hasn't been updated in a long time; open to cracking.
Recommend you get an up to date distro; try Fedora 13 (they dropped the 'Core' a while back) if you want to stay with Fedora.
Note that's a new version about every year.
For a longer term system, try Centos; a free version of RHEL, Currently on 5.5.
