IPCHAINS error


I get this while doing alot of IPCHAINS commands
root@sinack:~# ipchains -N fwrules
ipchains: Protocol not available

root@sinack:~# ipchains -F
ipchains: Incompatible with this kernel

and a shit load of errors. I don't have netfilters enabled in my kernel.

Huh?

So you're using IPCHAINS through a 2.4.20 kernel. Does it usually work? What does your /usr/src/linux-2.4.20/.config say about IPCHAINS configuration?

The 2.4.x series switched to iptables. If you compile your own kernel you can add ipchains compatibility. In general, it is probably better to make the switch to iptables. It is fairly painless as the syntax for rules is similar to ipchains.

I was reading the documentation for iptables and it said it was mostly for firewalls used by saw, router like PCs and such.. that's why I was going to stay with ip chains
