    Hi there,

    I have an odd issue. The Bastille-firewall is not running at startup.

    I can run /etc/init.d/bastille-firewall start manually and it executes perfectly fine and sets up iptables exactly as stated in my ISPConfig admin panel.

    However, it seems I must do this after every reboot of the server.

    I've tried
    # update-rc.d bastille-firewall defaults
    and all I get back is
    System start/stop links for /etc/init.d/bastille-firewall already exist.
    but they don't seem to want to run.

    any ideas?

    I'm running on Ubuntu 12.04 Server.

    Thanks in advance,

    I managed to fix it. Two reboots have shown it now works.

    Somewhere along the line, the script /etc/init.d/bastille-firewall had become unexecutable, so a simple chmod +x /etc/init.d/bastille-firewall did the trick.

    I honestly have NO idea why this happened, but I'm glad it's sorted now.
