I'm always happy to help!

Now, I'm not sure exactly what you mean about iptables for a DHCP server. You need to install a DHCP server separately. For Debian, you would do the following:

Code:
# apt-get update && apt-get install dhcp3-server
if your not using Debian.... then you should be!

And then I believe the config files are in '/etc/dhcp3'... but I have very minimal experience with that.

Default TheMachine, Falko, pay attention...

I added a comment to the basic IPTABLES walkthrough, perhaps you can include it as a part of the walkthrough?
That will be easier to reach, I don't know if they really read the comments.

You can write themachine a private message through this forum. He wrote the howto.

As all of the comments to the howto are "anonymous" I am not sure which comment you are talking about. Please send me a message as Falko mentioned.

KillFrog...

I read your comment, and think the script would work great. However, and forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think it would be best to leave the howto as is... with your addition left as a comment (which will be seen).

The reason being, I've attempted to present iptables the 'Debian' way. Though having an init script such as yours would be awesome, and ease administration... its still a custom script. I think understanding how the Debian init script functions, save/reloads rules, etc is important to know... and then, after that, finding what works for you with customization.

I did add a "Reader Additions" section, with a breif discription of your comment... as well as a link to it.

Thank you for you for adding that, I think alot of people will find that useful.

Default well...

I think you're absolutely right and the idea of changing the howto is not so good, specially after understanding what was your main purpose.
So, I agree with you, that the "customization" of iptables should stay there, as an added reference to the original HOWTO, which is great, in my opinion.
Keep up the good work!
