    Debian 5.0.6 Iptables modules installation - VMware

    Hello.


    I use Debian 5.0.6 32-bit through VMware workstation installed on my Windows Server 2003. I just simply installed it from CD-1 and I use Directadmin on that.


    I need a lot of iptables commands for blocking but I keep getting missing module errors on that one, I did lsmod | grep -i iptables to see there are no modules. It should have been installed by the disc image but I don't know why it didn't. So I now want to know how to get those modules required by iptables.

    I'm a noob at Linux so some tutorial will be good if anyone suggests re-compiling.

    The module isn't called "iptables" so your grep won't come up with anything even if it is loaded.

    Code:
    ~# lsmod | grep -i iptable
    iptable_filter          1302  1 
    ip_tables              10460  1 iptable_filter
    x_tables               15921  4 xt_tcpudp,xt_conntrack,iptable_filter,ip_tables

    Iptables allows me to do simple commands like -A INPUT -p udp -j DROP

    But rate limit commands would give me an Invalid Argument error and that's because of missing module.
