#5628 closed defect (fixed)

netfilter - state match support broken, brcm47xx

Reported by: arus at poczta dot onet dot pl Owned by: nbd
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: netfilter iptables state match established Cc:


How to reproduce:

root@OpenWrt:/# iptables -N test
root@OpenWrt:/# iptables -A test -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
root@OpenWrt:/# iptables -D test -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables: Bad rule (does a matching rule exist in that chain?).

Looks like that rule gets additional/different attributes, which are not visible in "iptables -L -v" output.
Established connections never match ESTABLISHED state rules, i.e. the following four lines would not allow SSH connection from LAN:

iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P OUTPUT DROP
iptables -A INPUT -i br-lan -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

It was working in svn revision 14954. I have no idea when it stopped working.
OpenWRT built on Fedora 11.

The source of the problem is in:
Removal of that file solves the issue.

Either this patch should be removed or appropriate patch for iptables should be created (I think).

This is rather seriuos disfunction. Could someone raise priority/severity of this ticket, please ?

I can confirm this. Shorewall isn't working in trunk without reversing the above mentioned patch.

Hi there,

I am using r18759 and can confirm that removing the above mentioned patch works. - also with shorewall 4.2.11
Ticket #5786 seems to describe the same problem.

I personally think that the patch should be removed if it cannot be repaired, since it makes iptables/netfilter behave in a non-standard way.

By the way, if someone wants to try shorewall 4.2.11:

Change two lines in kamikaze/package/feeds/packages/shorewall-common/Makefile:



Change two lines in kamikaze/package/feeds/packages/shorewall-shell/Makefile:



Worksforme, but I haven't tied out everything yet.
