Forums Network Management ZeroShell Surviving a reboot… Re: Rule for iptables in rc.local =>


I need to avoid broadcast tempest through zeroshell=bridge.

I add in Startup Configuration:

/cdrom/usr/local/sbin/iptables -A FORWARD -m pkttype –pkt-type multicast -m limit –limit 10/second -j ACCEPT

This rule is successfuly added at the end of FORWARD chain.

root@zeroshell misc> iptables -L |grep limit

ACCEPT all — anywhere anywhere PKTTYPE = multicast limit: avg 10/sec burst 5

But if I change something in firewall configuration, this rule disappeares.
=> reboot is necessary

Is there an other solution ?
