You mean the error message was:
Code:
Couldn't load match 'account':/usr/local/lib/iptables/libipt_account.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
??

Have you seen:
http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-81416.html

Though you may need only enable the option... what is it you want to achieve?
Note - this question would be easier to answer properly if you edited your profile to show your location and distro.
Thanks.

yes i have gone through the link. I am using RHEL5 32-bit Server Edition. when i am writing that rule it was showing that libipt_account.so is not available. Yes in /lib/iptables, libipt_account.so is not there. So how do i get that library. i am a newbie, learning iptables. So provide me some, help how do i get this.
