iptables-restore ubuntu server does not restore at boot
 
what could this be

i saved my correct iptables file @
Code:

/etc/iptables.up.rules
where webmin is looking for it.

webmin config is to automaticly boot this file and addes a line at.

Code:

/etc/network/interfaces
file

post-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules

but when i reboot i have to manualy
Code:

iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules
file

also i added the line
Code:

iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules
into
Code:

/etc/rc.local
also no restore iptables?

what could this be and why is this restore not working on ubuntu server edition

kernel 2.6.31-17-server

Path
 
Specify a fully qualified path. For example:

/sbin/iptables-restore < some.file

I had a similar problem when using rc.local also I was only able to get it to work when I loaded iptables-restore < rules via a script instead.

[solved]

i did put this line

Code:

post-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules
at the bottom of
Code:

/etc/network/interfaces
not at the middle like webmin post it

rebooted the machine..

and i got it right ??

I have the same issue on Desktop 9.1

tried it with "post-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules"
in the middle of /etc/interfaces where webmin put it and at the end like suggested here.

anyone else have any other ideas?

thanks
