I was trying to get iptables to work last night, but when I do a
modprobe on iptables I get the following on stderr:
init_module: Device or resource busy
Stdout says something like :
Hint: insmod can fail because of invalid IRQ or Base Address
"You may need to upgrade iptables or your kernel"
I thought I had chosen to include firewalling when installing my Linux,
and also the iptables man pages, etc. are present (in fact my boot
sequence claims to be starting iptables, though I've noticed that this
will pipe stderr to /dev/null, so its hard to tell if it failing on
My System is a RH 7.3 and the ip_tables seems to be the latest version.
iptables -V works fine, but trying anything else give the errors above.
Any ideas ?
