Firestarter Privileges under gnome
I installed firestarter under dropline gnome, everything runs fine under root, but it would not run under another account. I set the chmod to kain:users with read write and execute permission, but it still says permission denied and only root can run it. The file is found in /usr/local/bin ... am I missing something? The privilege is right for the kain account, it should run correctly.

Looks like you have to be root or use sudo to give your user root access to firestarter...

It works, but when I launch it, it gives me the following message "You kernel does not support iptables" But it does support iptables under root ... it is strange, do i need to modify another set of privilages?

Need a copy of /etc/firestarter/inbound/forward
I need a copy of /etc/firestarter/inbound/forward, I currently have no ports being forwarded. I would normally change this in gnome, only thing is i didn't install xwindows. What I did was save my /etc/firestarter folder and moved it to an old machine i'm using for firewall/router. I don't actually need to have IPs or anything. I just need example syntex for the forward file. If anyone could help that would awesome and much appreciated.
