kernel upgrade burstnet performs breaks pmfirewall that comes installed standard on cpanel servers.

ipchains: Incompatible with this kernel

pmfirewall only supports ipchains and not iptables.

did they leave something out when performing the kernel upgrade?

Huh? What do you mean? Your kernel needs to be compiled with iptables support not ipchains. Get a kernel with iptables support!

i need kernal that supports ipchains so i can use pmfireall. so burstnet did not compile kernal with ipchains support. Well great. The firewall that comes with their cpanel severs no longer works now.

You can have ipchains and iptables support, just as long as you don't try to run both of them at the same time.

You need iptables support for cPanel. Besides PMFirewall does not work on RH boxes higher then RH 7.1 unless you insmod it and use it to run PMFirewall. RH 7.2 supported iptables by default and if you wanted to run PMfirewall you had to remove iptables and use ipchains for PMFirewall. But with cPanel it forces you to use Iptables because of their bandmin program or whatever they call it so PMFirewall is no longer an option when running cPanel, unfortuantely!
