Firewall for IPv6 without ip6tables
« on: May 04, 2011, 11:47:03 PM »

Hi, all!

Is there any other possibility to create a Firewall (at least for the Tunnelbroker tunnels) without using ip6tables?
I'd like to have an IPv6 address on my Virtuozzo vServer but my provider didn't configured the modules for this programm and I always get this error:

root@ns:~# ip6tables -vnL
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.
FATAL: Module ip6_tables not found.
ip6tables v1.4.4: can't initialize ip6tables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps ip6tables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.


IPv6 runs on the vServer (using an OpenVPN tunnel to my PC at home), but I'd like to have a tunnel on the vServer. My PC at home does not have a stable DSL, unfortunately...

Any suggestion?

Thanks

You should probably compile a custom kernel with it NOT as a module.

Unfortunately this is not possible. Virtuozzo does not allow to compile an own kernel nor to load other modules as the administrator decided.

Therefore I asked if there is an alternative to netfilter...

There is no alternative. ip[6]tables IS the firewall in linux.
