I have a rather standard IPtables and I'd like to switch to KISS. Can I just install KISS, which will overwrite the excisting IPtables or should I first delete all IPtables lines and then install KISS?
I'm not a real firewall guru so I hope someone can help me?!
I have installed Kiss which went without any problem. But in my /etc/sysconfig/iptables are still the old rules (shouldn't be there something from KISS?). Should I delete the file or open the file and remove all lines ?
Hmm ... I still didn't understand it, so I googled a bit more.
So now I understand that if you 'Flush' IPtables the rules will be deleted but NOT from the file /etc/sysconfig/iptables. So if I want to use KISS I must call IPtables with the command KISS and not /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables. Because at the moment when the server is rebooted /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables is called (which is using the /etc/sysconfig/iptables rules). Am I correct on this ?
Yea the kiss firewall will not work in FreeBSd because their is no /etc/rc.d/rc.local dir, well the /etc is in all Unix OS acourse but not that hole path and when i did try to run it i got permission denied and i tryed changing the permission's and then it said unknown command. If any one has been successful at getting it to work or re wrote a kiss script let me know i would apprecate but for now i am going to try to get APF to work again.
