I'm running SuSE 9.2 professional and have enabled the built-in
firewall. It's just a wrapper to iptables but I'd like to stick with it
for the moment.
I need to add a custom rule to allow multicast traffic, i.e. something like:
iptables -I input_ext 2 -d 22.214.171.124/24 -p udp -j ACCEPT
The "input_ext" is a chain through which all incoming traffic for eth0
This works, but I'm looking for a way to make it persist across boots.
The SuSE firewall tool won't allow adding such a rule through the GUI,
so I'm looking at adding that line to some boot script or other, e.g.
like in RH9's /etc/rc.d/rc.local
SuSE 9.2 doesn't have an rc.local file. So where's the recommended place
to put stuff like this? I'd prefer not to go editing the firewall shell
