kernel 2.6.1: iptables doesn't run..but module is loaded


I've baked my own new 2.6.1-kernel for my redhat9 and the most functions run well (like usb&rpm's...). But I've got the following problem with loading and acting iptables. I've compiled "iptables" as a modul in my kernel:
Code:
# IP: Netfilter Configuration
#
# CONFIG_IP_NF_CONNTRACK is not set
# CONFIG_IP_NF_QUEUE is not set
CONFIG_IP_NF_IPTABLES=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_LIMIT=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_IPRANGE=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_MAC=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_PKTTYPE=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_MARK=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_MULTIPORT=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_TOS=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_RECENT=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_ECN=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_DSCP=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_AH_ESP=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_LENGTH=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_TTL=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_TCPMSS=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_OWNER=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_PHYSDEV=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_FILTER=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_TARGET_REJECT=m
# CONFIG_IP_NF_MANGLE is not set
CONFIG_IP_NF_TARGET_LOG=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_TARGET_ULOG=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_TARGET_TCPMSS=m
CONFIG_IP_NF_ARPTABLES=y
CONFIG_IP_NF_ARPFILTER=y
CONFIG_IP_NF_ARP_MANGLE=y
# CONFIG_IP_NF_COMPAT_IPCHAINS is not set
# CONFIG_IP_NF_COMPAT_IPFWADM is not set

#
# DECnet: Netfilter Configuration
#
# CONFIG_DECNET_NF_GRABULATOR is not set

#
# Bridge: Netfilter Configuration
#
# CONFIG_BRIDGE_NF_EBTABLES is not set
CONFIG_XFRM=y
# CONFIG_XFRM_USER is not set
do you see.... i also can load the module:(?)---...hmmm:
Code:
[root@mobile_abc1 scripts]# modprobe iptables
FATAL: Module iptables not found.
[root@mobile_abc1 scripts]# modprobe ip_tables
[root@mobile_abc1 scripts]# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
ip_tables              20240  0

usbkbd                  7424  0
hid                    64000  0
but anyhow, i can't use and act iptables:
Code:
[root@mobile_abc1 scripts]# ./MASTERCHAINS
Filterregeln des MASTERCHAINS werden übernommen...
iptables v1.2.7a: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
iptables v1.2.7a: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
iptables v1.2.7a: can't initialize ip--...usw, usw
but why? has got anyone of you an idea, why it isn't running...? the module is loaded as you see above by the command "lsmod"...
regards&thanks

You also need to load the ip_filter module. Probably some other modules also, it depends on your rules and what you want to do with iptables.

I meant to say you need to load iptable_filter module. Thats what I get for posting from a windows machine.

Some iptables Documentation.


An example iptables script. Shows common modules to load.
