I'm not a neophyte when it comes to iptables, but this behavior has me crosseyed. I edit my iptables to allow port 8080 availability. I iptable-save it to the /etc/sysconfig/iptables file. Within a days time period my rule is gone from iptables. If I restart the service, it pulls the rules correctly from sysconfig and my port is there.. again it dissapears.
I have been hunting through the system for a mechanism which cleans the rules and just can't put my finger on it, but since cpanel is the only culprit i have not had extended experience on I feel it is something within it. The rest of the services on this centos4 box are just mambo and tomcat.
I've seen others point out this iptables-dropping issue but all the responses echo back to AFP and I don't need AFP, I just need these rules to stay and not get pruned during runtime.
Clues & Comments welcome!
