can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist...
When I try to use IPTABLES to secure some connections to SSH... :
# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s x.x.x.x -m tcp --dport 22 -m state --state NEW -m limit --limit 3/min --limit-burst 3 -j ACCEPT
iptables v1.4.2: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
Using Debian Lenny (VPS).
Any Ideas ?
# apt-get install iptables

iptables is already the newest version.
