Garrett R asked:
I want to use -m comment –comment “message” in my iptables rule but do not have the module loaded. Through some searching, the module I need for this is “ipt_comment” but I do not have this installed. How can I make this happen?
My version of Iptables is 1.4.21
/sbin/modprobe –list returns nothing
/sbin/lsmod is empty as well.
Im using Ubuntu 12.04.1 server
Sounds like you are on an OpenVZ based VPS. You cannot install modules on such a VPS.
You have two options:
- You can ask the host to install the module for you.
- You can switch to a different VPS which is not based on OpenVZ.
virt-what command to confirm what type of VPS you have.
