Based on all the docs I've read about using ipfw, you should put "ipfw allow all any from any via lo0" somewhere at the top of your script so all traffic can and will be sent via lo0.
I think you are talking about the line below, is this right?
/sbin/ipfw -q add 50 allow all from any to any via lo0 It is there.. this is the first line to be met by packets in my /etc/ifpw.rules script it is also one of the default rules coming in /etc/rc.firewall script ...where i copied it from. On 12/10/06, *Chris - WEBignite* <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
I've actually just started seeing this same error. I do have a rule set for local 127.0.0.1 and an allow for layer2 traffic.
Oct 11 23:59:02 firewall sshd: fatal: Write failed: Permission
I get this error when updating my firewall rules via ssh. Any current ssh connections are dropped, but I'm able to reinitiate a new connection
Could you please let me know what FreeBSD version you are using? On 12/10/06, *Giorgos Keramidas* <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
Yes. See above. The `ipfw -d show' command shown there was after I looped using SSH from my workstation to another system and back again.
Sorry i will not be able to reply again tonight
No problem. Take your time. There is definitely a logical explanation why this is happening, even if that explanation is `there is a bug in ipfw and 5.4' :)
I turned on the laptop and now everything is working again, as i initially described (I don't have a clue of what happened yesterday) I can ssh the machine as a normal user but cannot su to root. When trying, (from a win machine) with putty it freezes immediately after i enter the root password and the message below is produced on the freebsd box Oct 12 17:58:52 user sshd: fatal: Write failed: Permission denied It is sshd that produces the above, but still i cannot identify what is it trying to do and why permission is denied. I have the option PermitRootLogins=No in my /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, but it was working properly before I enable ipfw Do you think it is a good idea to take ipfw out of the kernel and try enabling it from /etc/rc.conf? Anyway i think i should wait a little more before i proceed with this Do you think that this is a bug?
