• Mason Error

    From Ralph Sanchez@21:1/5 to All on Sat May 21 23:30:02 2016
    Mason is telling me my kernel doesnt support IPtable, Ipchains or the
    third option...iptables is installed. Kernel version 3.16.?? (i
    forget). Just wandering what's wrong here. Here's the terminal
    output...

    onyx@FBI:~$ sudo mason

    found in your path or in /sbin. You may need to copy it
    or add an explicit path to it in the following commands.

    Linux 2.6 and above does not support ipchains and ipfwadm.
    What does "iptables -L" report ?

    you may consider to use nftables. The package is not installed by default.

    Sorry to tell you , it is a stupid answer. He tells you he can't run
    iptables

    That's not what he said. There's also no reason to characterise other
    poster's responses as "stupid".

    and you suggest to ask iptables to list the rules it uses! Now what
    (who?) is Mason is perhaps the first question to ask.

    It's clearly "what", not "who", given that the original post included
    the output of "sudo mason". A tiny amount of research would go a long
    way:

    adam@jacala:~$ apt-cache search mason firewall

    I have been using iptables since 2004 (at least). It is difficult at first but http://netfilter.org
    /documentation you should do it. I am not very good and I did!

    I suppose that using Mason is an option you can use, but it hasn't been
    updated since 2012[0]. The version you're using is from 2008, that's 8
    years ago! Given that the 'latest' version is from 2012, I'm not sure
    whether this is a good program to start with. It even mentions ipchains,
    which was deprecated around kernel version 2.4 (see this message on this
    list from 1999[3]).

    As recommended earlier, Shorewall or ufw should be good options to start
    with. Both are still[1] maintained and updated regularly[2].

    If you want to start with 'raw' IPtables, have a look at this Arch Linux
    wiki page[4], which extensively explains how to build a stateful firewall
    using IPtables.

    Take care :)

    Linux 2.6 and above does not support ipchains and ipfwadm.

    What does "iptables -L" report ?

    Sorry to tell you , it is a stupid answer. He tells you he can't run iptables

    That's not what he said. There's also no reason to characterise other poster's responses as "stupid".

    and you suggest to ask iptables to list the rules it uses! Now what
    (who?) is Mason is perhaps the first question to ask.

    It's clearly "what", not "who", given that the original post included
    the output of "sudo mason". A tiny amount of research would go a long
    way:

    adam@jacala:~$ apt-cache search mason firewall
    mason - Interactively creates a Linux packet filtering firewall

    Sorry too for the word "Stupid". It was late and I did what I don't like when others do it: I didn't
    read the whole post!
