I installed KISS My Firewall and am now receiving the above emails. Anyway to stop this.

These messages are/were sent in the past week or so when I was experimenting with other firewalls as well.

TIA

Thanks torwill.

Issued the stop/start in /usr/local. Will wait and see (hope) that took care of it.

It errored out in /etc/init.d/bandmin

Have you tried reinstalling iptables via WHM? We had the same problem after a kernel upgrade. Uninstalling iptables and then installing it again fixed the problem.

<thud>

Won't that break the firewall? Guess I could stop it, re-install ip tables and restart.

I'll give it a while till I resort to re-installing IPTables.

newbie here ya know ;)

i might be wrong, but i guess bandmin uses iptables and ruleset to monitor bandwidth.

i had a server with no firewall or whatsoever on it. but when i issued "iptables -L -n". a ruleset was already there. i flushed it and then restart bandmin, the ruleset come back. then when you start the firewall (all firewall (any not flush first?) script flush clean then add rules), bandmin ruleset is missing. hence the error messages.

again, i might be wrong. but restart bandmin works for me.

So a question arises........Can bandmin and a firewall function together?

They seem to. The stop and restart fixed that problem. Haven't gotten an e-mail since.

Now to see if it is affecting bandwidth stats...
