I make changes to the iptables firewall through the webmin interface.
When i go to apply those changes webmin reverts iptables to the state before the chnages and erases all the new rules I just made. If I make the changes then go to a console and type in /etc/init.d/iptables reload the changes are made and kept.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make changes to the iptables firewall via webmin
2.apply your new changes using the "apply configuration"
The changes are erased and webmin applies the iptables rules from before the edit.
Applied the changes to the firewall
can you please report this to the upstream developers as well
Can you try with 1.200 please?
closing due to lack of response
Sorry for the late response. I should have closed this bug a while back. What it was in the /etc/init.d/iptables script there is an option to save before stopping which is on by default. So when you pressed apply changes in webmin the script overwrote the changes made with the one's already loaded. Commenting out the line in /etc/init.d/iptables which saves the rules before stopping fixed this. It had nothing to do with webmin.
