    I just downloaded and installed APF, but have had to prevent it from loading on startup.

    When I try to run it from the SSH commandline, I get:
    Code:
    Development mode enabled!; firewall will flush every 5 minutes.
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
    At that point, the server basically bans all IPs, including mine, and I am disconnected. Good job APF is in devel mode, and after 5 mins it terminates itself and I can connect again. Obviously, though, there is a problem with iptables and those error messages are notoriously cryptic. :-( Could anyone give me some idea of where to go from here to get APF working?

    Go on, have a guess
    That shows that your VPS provider has not included all the iptables modules required to use an SPI firewall - you'll have to contact them to have them do that, if they're willing.

    If they're not willing, then you'll have to look for a static firewall iptables script.
