Shorewall configuration ('run_iptables' - problem)


Hi,

I want to configure a shorewall on a new CentOS-(4.0beta-)server - I do have the shorewall-configuration-files of my old (Debian-)server and I have downloaded and installed the actual version of shorewall (2.2.0).

I think I did have done all, which I did 2 years ago on the old server....

... but the shorewall does not start:
Quote:
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 13: run_iptables: command not found
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 14: run_iptables: command not found

What is wrong with the command 'run_iptables'?

Thx
Quintus

This ist the output from the log:
Quote:
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 13: run_iptables: command not found
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 14: run_iptables: command not found
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 15: run_iptables: command not found
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 16: run_iptables: command not found
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 17: run_iptables: command not found
/etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf: line 18: run_iptables: command not found
/usr/sbin/shorewall: line 838: /usr/share/shorewall/firewall: Keine Berechtigung (= no authorisation)
/usr/sbin/shorewall: line 838: exec: /usr/share/shorewall/firewall: cannot execute: Keine Berechtigung (= no authorisation)

Nobody any idea....?

Thx,
Quintus

Hi,

FYI - we found a solution:

1.) on the CentOS-installation is no command 'run_iptables' present (nobody knows why) - replacing the command 'run_iptables' with 'iptables' in the shorewall.conf did solve this problem.

2.) setting '/usr/share/shorewall/firewall' with chmod to 755 did solve the 'cannot execute'-problem.

Thanks - it's running now

Regards, Quintus14
