View Full Version : [ubuntu] iptables installation

Hello, Ubuntu world,

can anyone advise the best practice of installing and setting
the iptables on U 8.04 LTS? currently iptables is not installed
nor as package nor included as kernel module.

with best,

If you use desktop version then it is time to upgrade,because Hardy desktop is not supported any more.Yopu have iptables installed but if you want to make changes try ufw.Also,under synaptic>repositories check all under ubuntu software (except source and CD rom) and first two under updates tab.Reload.Nopw you should be able to install any packages releted to iptables and ufw.
