So I am trying to setup shorewall firewall on my linux vps. The vps is running ubuntu 12.10. When I type
$ shorewall check I get this error.
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name. ERROR: Log level INFO requires LOG Target in your kernel and iptables
So I run iptables -L and I get
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination
I tried looking at other posts and there is one similar, but it did not help me. The kernel I am using is 2.6.32-042stab079.5
Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this? I’ve seen a few things about changing the kernel config, but I have no idea how to do that or what to change.
You’re using an OpenVZ based VPS. As with all container-based virtualization, you are limited to the kernel modules provided by the host.
Your options are:
- Contact the host and request that they make the necessary kernel modules available to you.
- Use a VPS not based on containers but on full virtualization or paravirtualization, such as Xen, KVM or VMware.
