View Full Version : iptables supported?

Does your setup support "iptables -j LOG" within the VPS?

I'm currently with another VPS provider (using Virtuozzo) and am unable to get the iptables logging to work (other aspects of iptables I need work for me).

It would be worth switching to another VPS provider to get iptables logging support.

I'm pretty sure it works. However, I'll test it out to be certain.

It appears as though it doesn't work. However, I'm going to see why that's that case, and if that can be changed.

Hope you find out. I haven't been able to find anything yet.

What wrong at Dinix and their Virtuozzo?
Just taking a shot that is where you are.

I'm not at Dinix but with another company providing Virtuozzo VPS.

So far, the iptables limitations I found are:

1. -j LOG (can't log so hackers can spend weeks trying to intrude without getting noticed)

2. -m state (can't use the most common/popular rules in iptables scripts--especially ones generated by tools)

3. -m iplimit (can't limit total number of concurrent connections per ip address/class--very useful for limiting hogs or dos attacks)

There's probably more limitations but I only care about the above 3 because they are so practical.

So far, I really like Virtuozzo compared to Sphera but if I can't find workarounds for these iptables limitations, I'll be forced to try User Mode Linux (UML).
