Hello. Apologies if I am going over old ground here. I have a stock
installation of RedHat 7.2 with the 2.4.7-10 kernel. I want to get IPTables
up and running. I have failed to either recompile this kernel (kernel panic
error) or can't compile the latest kernel (2.4.17) due to "cant't find
aac7xxx scsi file" type errors. The problem seems to be that I can't I have
an scsi harddisk, and even though I compile in the scsi stuff, I can't boot
with the upgraded kernel.
My question is, can I get away with downloading the latest iptables file
module, compile it, etc. and make do with this. I basically want a firewall
that denies all, allows SSH, and HTTP server operations.
