What needs to be done to have iptables working on MBWE ? After installing the iptables, libnetfilter-queue and libnfnetlink packages via ipkg, I still get the following error :
iptables v1.2.11: can't initialize iptables table ‘filter’: iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
netfilter (packet filtering at kernel level) - on which iptables (Linux firewall to manage packet filter rulesets) relies - needs to be setup to have moblock working.
"insmod" is available in the package "module-init-tools", but how to get the needed kernel modules for iptables ? Is there no other choice than altering the Linux kernel ? I understood that cross-compiling1 the Linux kernel with additional modules could provide new features. Some of you reported here to have successfully installed moblock but I haven't find any working instructions. I found someone who has probably done some progress with iptables2 integration to the MBWE but I didn't manage to contact him so far…
In addition to moblock, I would like to be able to run the arno-iptables-firewall script.
If you could share some thoughts about the topic, we may finally propose a clear solution for everyone to apply.
