Re: Why does Fedora do this with iptables?



Michael S.:
With iptables/netfilter, user-defined chains are *essential* for many
firewall implementation details. There are some things you cannot do
without using user-defined chains (e.g. a logical AND for certain
types of traffic). Get used to it.

OK. But, why put everything into a U-D chain? I figure that the geek thing would be to have them for only that which needs it.

Robert:
Note that the RH-Firewall-1-INPUT chain is called from two places.
Think about it.

Not on mine:   Chain RH-Firewall-1-INPUT (1 references)
