Bpi-w2 and iptables


(gary) #1

See below…seem a library for iptables is missing. Installed ubuntu: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-base/releases/16.04/release/ubuntu-base-16.04.5-base-arm64.tar.gz

Any help on getting iptables to work would be GREAT! A must have it using device as a router for me using many of the iptables function: NAT, routing, etc.

thanks, g.

Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Kernel 4.4 does not support iptables. You can try the latest Ubuntu image with kernel 4.9.

It supports. Somebody from this forum has compiled kernel 4.4.18 with iptables especially for me.

this worked…now I need details on how to DIY the xcompiling of a workable kernel, dtb, modules, firmware, etc. G.)
