How to restore iptables starting script
 
Hi folks,


Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64


Just found iptables NOT running which, I suppose, was caused by accidentally deleting /home/satimis previously.


$ sudo /etc/rc.local start/stop/restart
No response (w/o printout)


Neither I find;
$ sudo ls /etc/init.d/ | grep iptables
No printout


The file /etc/rc.local is still there with rules intact.


$ ls -l /sbin/iptables
Code:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 57336 2007-07-06 02:17 /sbin/iptables
is still there.


Please advise where can I get the starting script "iptables" back?

Which is the correct step starting iptables;
$ sudo /etc/rc.local
???

OR
$ sudo /etc/init.d/iptables
???


Please advise. TIA


B.R.

Look under firewalls in the following link:

It also looks like you could install firewall builder and create a firewall using a GUI:
