#9241 closed defect (worksforme)

Rules for additional zones do not work because of NOTRACK

Reported by: nils@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC4
Keywords: Cc:


It took me ages to find out why the firewall rules for my non-standard zone "maint" wouldn't work: because there was a NOTRACK rule in table/chain raw/zone_maint_notrack! Hence response packets were not covered by the standard ESTABLISHED rule and required an super ugly additional (ipchains-style) rule.

This issue is the same as #7196, but the patch does not help my case. I had to manually add my zone to CONNTRACK_ZONES= at the beginning of /lib/firewall/ in order to make my (filter) rules for the new zone work (i know, dodgy workaround - What is the proper way to make my non-standard zone connection tracked?)

I suggest all zones are connection tracked by default unless tracking is explicitly deactivated.
