    I have tried disabling ipv6 module on my firewalls and now when I try to install the iptables policies I get:

    Error inserting nf_conntrack_ipv6 (/lib/modules/2.6.25-14.fc9.i686/kernel/net/ipv6/netfilter/nf_conntrack_ipv6.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

    Is there a way to disable IPV6 in firewallbuilder?

      the error indicates that the module nf_conntrack_ipv6 does not match running kernel. If you recompiled the kernel and disabled ipv6 in it, you should probably remove the module too.
