If you iptables is compiled in your kernel as a module then type lsmod and you should see it there.

If it's built in the kernel then your good to go just type iptables to see if you even have it then do whatever you want with it.

Hmmm I do not need to know if I have it. I know that already. My question is how can I be sure iptables are acctually running (not stopped)?

Thanks anyway,

I always go to this wb site: https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 and run the port scans they offer, after I do a fresh install. Ideally you wan't your computer to get "stealth" on everything, but I don't worry about failing the ping part of the test. Click proceed on the bottom of that webpage.

you can use a program like guarddog for a front end for iptables. there you can set up stuff, and see if it indeed is running.

sorry I misunderstood your question. just run /sbin/iptables -L to see a list of the rules you have currently loaded.

lol @ grc.com use nmap instead!

nmap -sS -sU -n -sR -T Aggressive -p 1-65535 yourip
