hi people
im still pretty new here so bare with me, i was informed that the etc/rc.d/rc.firewall script was run with iptabes, but when i try to find a script to copy to that file (wich i stil have not made) it always has to types etc/iptables and etc/ipchains and all i have is ipchains in my etc directory, any info for a new learner??
