Thread: Shorewall in Mandriva2008, missing module

  1. Shorewall in Mandriva2008, missing module

    Hello!


    FATAL error when starting shorewall. Shorewall seems to functioning though.

    "Processing /etc/shorewall/start ...
    FATAL: Module ip_set not found.
    ipset v2.2.9a: Error from kernel: Protocol not available
    iptables v1.3.7: Problem when communicating with ipset, errno=92.

    FATAL: Module ip_set not found.
    ipset v2.2.9a: Error from kernel: Protocol not available
    iptables v1.3.7: Problem when communicating with ipset, errno=92.

    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    Processing /etc/shorewall/started ...
    done."

    Cannot find module ip_set. Is the module necessary for safe using of
    shorewall?

    Regards

    See http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=32399

    I have the same, but as far as my limited testing has shown, iptables (which
    shorewall is just a configuration front end), is still working correctly..

    I'm not sure what the ip_set kernel module is actually used for, but for
    a simple internet client, everything seems to be working ok without it.

    I don't know about nat, etc.
