iptables

Hey all,

ipkg install iptables warns about unsatisfied recommendations for kernel-module-ip-tables and kernel-module-iptable-filter.

I scanned through ipkg list but couldn't find any references to these mentioned packages.

Is there support for these packages somewhere on http://www.armbedded.eu/download/taskit-0.1/ipk/... or is it necessary to build these items yourselve.

Or is support normally build into the kernel directly?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Re: iptables

The packages are not there because the config used to compile the kernel did not have iptables as modules activated. To get support for iptables you have to recompile the kernel, activating iptables support beforehand, or at least compile the modules. What options are needed is described in various iptables howtos.
