I have a weird problem regarding ipchains. I have a firewall using ipchains
that masquerades packets form a LAN to the internet. It worked well for
about 5 months now. Recently the sever started to just stop forwarding the
packets through the firewall. This happens about 1 to 2 times a day. If I
run the ipchains script ( flush all the rules and put them in again ),
everything is then back to normal. In the ipchains log file, the following
message appears at the end:
eth0 went into promiscuous mode.
eth0 went out of promiscuous mode.
This message appears about 4 times at the end of the log file.
If anyone has encountered the same problem and can help me to solve it, I
would appreciate it. ( I am using RH 6.1 )
Thanks for your help.
