LMS4.2.1 using iptables in soft applience to control access to server

Hello,

I have LMS on a public IP, and need a way to limit access port by port. As I know how to get aroung in linux, I thought I'll use iptables. But I loose all my iptables rules after every reboot, and this is not a standard linux (RHEL) bahavior.

If i do "service iptables restart" after the server boots, my rules are loaded succesfully.

I googled for answers.

This is what I checked:

There are no errors in messages log.

This seems ok:

[prime/root-ade log]# chkconfig --list | grep tables

ip6tables       0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

iptables        0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

[prime/root-ade log]# ls -l /etc/rc3.d/ | grep iptables

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      18 Jul 18  2011 S08iptables -> ../init.d/iptables

Tried "service iptables save". iptables and iptables.save holds my custom rules:

[prime/root-ade log]# ls -l /etc/sysconfig/ | grep tables

-rw------- 1 root gadmin 1136 Aug 11 14:58 iptables

-rw------- 1 root root   1740 May 19  2009 iptables-config

-rw------- 1 root gadmin 1138 Aug 11 14:58 iptables.save

Putting "/sbin/service iptables restart" in /etc/rc.local doesn't help either.

Anyone?

Workaround: backup "firewall" executable and create an empty bash script with the same name instead. Then use iptables.
