Hello,

Apologies if this is documented somewhere already.

I see that there are ip[6]tables* scripts in /etc/miniupnpd/ - which do the analog to their ipv4 counterpart scripts. But in the init.d script - they don't get called.

What I did is to simply "double up":

Code:
IPTABLES_CREATE=/etc/miniupnpd/iptables_init.sh
IPTABLES_REMOVE=/etc/miniupnpd/iptables_removeall.sh

IP6TABLES_CREATE=/etc/miniupnpd/ip6tables_init.sh
IP6TABLES_REMOVE=/etc/miniupnpd/ip6tables_removeall.sh


And then everywhere IPTABLES_* is called, also call IP6TABLES_*.

Would it harm anything to go ahead and put this in the script ? I'm trying to think of a downside or gotcha. In other words, even if someone isn't using IPv6 - populating the ip6tables filters shouldn't cause any harm should it ?

Thanks.

I think nobody uses UPnP for IPv6...
but you are perfectly right, that wouldn't do any harm to run the IPv6 init scripts
