SubjectRE: [OT] Re: Linux NAT questions- (kernel upgrade??)
I am using the Red Hat 7,  below are my kernel version.  I feel Red Hat 7 is
quite new, although RH 7.1 has just come out. How come it still say that my
kernel version is old.

[root@guava simc]# uname -a
Linux guava 2.2.16-22 #1 Tue Aug 22 16:16:55 EDT 2000 i586 unknown
[root@guava simc]#

Either upgrade to a distro that includes the new kernel
(e.g. latest SuSE or Red Hat) or download kernel source
and compile. It might be helpful to provide the distribution
and version you are using (Red Hat 6.2, Slackware 7,
Debian Potato, etc)

Yes, of course iptables won't work with the old kernel.
If you want to stay with the old kernel, you must use
ipchains instead.
