I'm changing over a server to use FWBuilder instead of raw IP Tables commands. The current setup with the raw commands was done by a consultant that left awhile ago and did a lousy job of documenting what he did. I'm trying to pick up the pieces. :-(
Even though the Firewall was working before, when I converted over to doing it with FWBuilder I was getting a bunch of errors like "WARNING: The state match is obsolete. Use conntrack instead." The Firewall would compile alright but it wouldn't install.
I kept trying to fix my commands in the FWBuilder interface and had no luck at it.
I finally found this online,
"Iptables >= 1.4.16 and fwbuilder doesn’t work"
That talks about the same error I get. And if I check he did install the same version of IP Tables.
So is that post right? There needs to be some upgrade before I can use it?
Sorry if my facts or details are off!
the warning about "state match is obsolete" is only a warning, it won't cause install to fail. If it fails, there must be other errors.
