bad argument 'iptables'


I have just installed RH9 with medium firewall protection
I want to work with iptables a bit, and open the telnet port and port 5555.

/etc/init.d/iptables stop
I copied the original iptables to iptables.good
then rempved all lines from the original file and added

#Polices
iptables -P INPUT drop
iptables -P OUTPUT drop
iptables -P FORWARD drop
# in and out
iptables -A OUTPUT -p ALL -s 192.168.1.103
iptables -A INPUT -p ALL -i eth0 -s 192.168.1.03 -j ACCEPT

COMMIT

/etc/init.d/iptables start

et the error bad argument iptables
Basicly took the above from examples I found

Thanks

try iptables --help at the command line to see if it comes up. Make sure you have the iptables module modprobed. Are you in root when doing this?

do lsmod and see what you have for modules installed. If I remember right RH has the iptables in as modules. there are a few different ones depending on what you want to do with your firewall. When you type 'which iptables' what do you get? Look at the old firewall script you moved and see what it has for commands for loading modules. It would have a command like insmod or modprobe.

*filter
:INPUT ACCEPT [0:0]
