Hello, I would like to ask for help. I had pretty well configured iptables with fail2ban rulez, but suddenly iptables are empty - but completly. Code: [email protected][email protected] As you can see, ip6tables do some response but iptables -L does nothing I was used to save iptables before reboot to file manualy, but I set crontab daily backup script Code: !/bin/bash iptables-save > /etc/iptables.rules Code: :~$ ls -l /sbin/iptables lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Mar 1 2013 /sbin/iptables -> xtables-multi and it seems from now it does nothing. I even tried to uninstall iptables package and install it again but without success. Is there a way how to fix this? Thanks EDIT: problem solved : as I wrote ... i had this script in usr/local/bin/iptablessave and in crontab ... it seems it was renewing the file all the time so it blocked normal iptables.
