Firewall and Low ID
« on: October 06, 2004, 12:54:44 PM »

I have a mandrake box with amule and firewall (iptables)..

So, I opened these ports:

#eDonkey-aMule
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p tcp --dport 4661 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p tcp --dport 4662 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p udp --dport 4665 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p udp --dport 4664 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p udp --dport 4672 -j ACCEPT
#edonkey webserber
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p tcp --dport 4711 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp0 -p tcp --dport 4712 -j ACCEPT

I don't know if they are all useful and functional, but I get ever low ID...
I don't know why (yes, I know, is because my firewall : when the firewall is down amule works perfectly.

I only notice the in my amule "my info" says:

Status: connected
IP:port Unknown

Any ideas?

Mandrake has its own firewall (or own rules, not sure), those rules arent enough.

Check the "Configure your computer" for it and add the ports in Advanced.

I found the problem: I enabled IP filtering.. Whitout It all goes at the right place (but It is a weird thing, anyway!!)

PS> Mandrake tools for network are very poor... I have to set up a firewall/router for a network with one single NIC (with 2 aliases) so, I have to edit manually my iptables rules (yes, I have other rules in my tables) because, for some reasons, the graphic tools (guard dog, firestarter) don't seem to cover this topic..
