I have webmin 1.000 running on Redhat 7.3.

I notice that the rule edit screen doesn't seem to let you
set multiple state matches as allowed by iptables:
e.g:

-m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED

I would have to add two rules one for RELATED and
one for ESTABLISHED using webmin.

Webmin doesn't mind the multiple state matches being
already loaded into iptables - you just cant edit them
or add them like that.

Another thing I notice is that webmin doesn't seem to
let you set the "unclean" experimental iptables option.

Regards Bill

PS. Webmin is a great tool BTW. Thanks!

    This problem with the --state flag was recently reported to me,
    and so a fix will be included in the next webmin release.

    And yes, there are several IPtables options like unclean and LOG
    that webmin cannot set yet.I didn't want to clutter up the
    user interface
    with infrequently used options, at least at first ..
