Bug in 1.2.13 firewall?

Thu, 13 Jun 1996 09:24:33 +0200

I cant add more than 16 rules to a firewall using 1.2.13. ipfw dumps core
and ipfwadm reports no rules after adding the 16th. The rules show up
in /proc. Anybody seen this? Could it be libc-5.2.18 + kernel 1.2.13? The
code for ipfwadm looks ok and does the kernel code (as best as I can tell)
so I am stumped. I would switch to 2.0 but this particular system has an ET
card in it which does not support newer kernels nor do they provide source
to fix the driver yourself.

I really wish Linus would not allow modules
without source to be used with Linux. his would have forced our client to
buy a different card and save me a big headache. If they have secrets they can
put them in an eeprom on their card!.
