help with ipchains?
i'm running mandrake 8.2 and would like to know how to configure
ipchains. I was reading how to's for ipchains but they didn't have a
configuration for kernel 2.4. They only have a set ups for 2.0 - 2.2 .
So if anyone knows how to configure it or have any advice please hit respond
thank you. :newbie:

ipchains were developed for kernels 2.2 with backward compatibility to fwadmin and patch released for 2.0 kernels, which worked with earlier versions of kernel <2.2 . Now for 2.4 we have iptables, and 2.4 version backward compatible with ipchains and fwadmin, so if you go with ipchains the scripts that are written for 2.2 work without a change on 2.4 as long as the kernel is compiled with ipchains in mind.

Correction to my previous post - it is ipfwadm, not fwadmin.
