iptables not setting UID for packet marking


Hi,

I'm trying to set up a shorewall firewall on a new NethServer (based on CentOS) and having an issue with routing packets based on a user. Eventually, after running out of all other ideas I finally ran an iptables capture. Once I did this, it was obvious why my rules weren't working. The UID field in all the traces show as 0:
Code:

This was a simple "ping google.com" from a regular user that gives up this for id:
Code:
[plex@NetServer ~]$ id
uid=(506)plex gid=(507)plex groups=507(plex),502(locals) context=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023
Any ideas why UID is zero or how to fix this.

Cheers.

Ha. Let me answer my own question here. I was running ping as the test, which I now find out is flagged as "setuid", so it effectively runs as root, hence UID=0. Guess I need to find another program to test with.

Cheers.
