    ipt modules for CSF


    I got a problem with CSF on my VPS. ipt_state and ipt_REDIRECT are not enabled on the node and I can't(and everyone else on the node) be using any ipt based firewall.
    I asked a hosting company to enable those modules and I provided a simple guide(Edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config and /etc/sysconfig/vz on the hardware node. Add ipt_state and ipt_REDIRECT into IPTABLES_MODULES= and IPTABLES= lines correspondingly.) I had the same problem on my old VPS provider and I provided the same guide and after it they restarted iptables and vz and it worked fine.

    Tech in my current hosting company is saying they need to re-compile the kernel with those modules 1st in order to enabled those modules. They tried 2 times and the server didn't boot into a new kernel.

    So, is there any other way to enable those modules without kernel re-compile.
    I even think "modprobe" shout do the trick. modprobe ipt_state and modprobe ipt_REDITECT and then add those modules into 2 files as I said above and it whould be working fine??

    I just need an expert to verify what I said. I might be wrong.

    I won't tell any names here, so don't ask plz

    I think they can enable these modules in the hardware node with modprobe command. If the Virtualization platform is openvz or virtuozzo, they can edit the container configuration file (Eg: /etc/sysconfig/vz-scripts/id.conf) and add required modules as follows:

    IPTABLES="ipt_REJECT ipt_tos ipt_limit ipt_multiport iptable_filter
    iptable_mangle ipt_TCPMSS ipt_tcpmss ipt_ttl ipt_length"
    Finally restart the container.
