Divert sockets for Linux 2.2.12

Divert sockets for Linux 2.2.12

Post by Ilia Baldin » Sat, 26 Feb 2000 04:00:00


This is an announcement of FreeBSD divert sockets now available
for Linux 2.2.12 (together with modified ipchains-1.3.9). Please


Latest available release is 1.0.4. Anything before that should be
considered beta.

Divert sockets let you bring packets to user space and selectively
reinject them in any direction (inbound, outbound,forward) based
on firewall rule selection. Whatever the firewall can filter out
you can bring to user space.

Unlike the raw sockets, with divert sockets you get the actual packet,
not its copy, so if you do not reinject it - its intended recepient will

not see it.

For more questions please read the HOWTO available at the same


PS An older version for Linux 2.0.36 is also

1. linux kernel 2.2.12 and DAC-960

I am running a redhat 6.1 box on an Intergraph Interserve (Integraph?!?!
I know they stopped making computers) with dual Pentium Pro 133 mHz
processors and a 3-channel Mylex DAC960 pci firmware 1.x. I haven't been
able to make either mandrake, debian or redhat see the Mylex, so I just
used the onboard Adaptec card. However, I just got in a few 4.3 gb
drives and I wanted to take linux off the 2 gig drive and throw it on
the Mylex card. I still can't get any distro to see the card. I've even
looked at the drivers and can't find anything to help me. The card is
registered as being busy so the kernel can't grab it. Any fixes? Anyone
else heard of this problem?
