Hi Wong,

hmm, works perfectly well here. Do you have any LANG or LC_* variables
set to some other value than C, POSIX, or en_US? If yes, you should
prefix the /sbin/ifconfig with "env LANG=POSIX LC_ALL=POSIX".

My apologize to misinform, your sample of script is able to run. I missed
the ' sign after .*$,\1,p. Below the result:

Server:~ # /sbin/ifconfig eth1 | sed -n -e 's,.*inet addr:[ ]*\([^ ]*\)

But it result same issue if run in boot.local

Which issue?

can you add "set -x" to your script and post the output from running the

Where can I put the command?

Right after the '#! /bin/sh' line.

Does the line #! /bin/sh cause the issue? In RH9 it was #! /bin/bash.

no, that would be highly unlikely, at least in a "normal" setup ;-)
Please show the output from the following commands:

# ls -als /bin/sh
# rpm -qf /bin/sh

Here it is:

Server:~ # ls -als /bin/sh
0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Sep 4 14:11 /bin/sh -> bash

Server:~ # rpm -qf /bin/sh

This looks OK.

Here is my boot.local scripts

#! /bin/sh

You could add here:

set -x

iptables -F
iptables --table nat --flush
iptables --delete-chain
iptables --table nat --delete-chain

#EXT_IP=`/sbin/ifconfig eth0 | grep inet | cut -d : -f 2 | cut -d \ -f 1`
EXT_IP=`/sbin/ifconfig eth0 | sed -n -e 's,.*inet addr:[ ]*\([^ ]*\)

Make sure, this is *one* line! So this should be:

EXT_IP=`/sbin/ifconfig eth0 | sed -n -e 's,.*inet addr:[ ]*\([^ ]*\)

#INT_IP=`/sbin/ifconfig eth1 | grep inet | cut -d : -f 2 | cut -d \ -f 1`
INT_IP=`/sbin/ifconfig eth1 | sed -n -e 's,.*inet addr:[ ]*\([^ ]*\)

Same here!

INT_IP=`/sbin/ifconfig eth1 | sed -n -e 's,.*inet addr:[ ]*\([^ ]*\)


iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -d $EXT_IP -p tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -s $INTRANET -d ! $INT_IP -p tcp --dport 25 -j LOG
iptables -A FORWARD -s $INTRANET -d ! $INT_IP -p tcp --dport 25 -j DROP

All scripts that use $EXT_IP and $INT_IP are unable run.

Thanks a lot, Manfred.
