    iptables: execvp: ERROR

    Ok...i have my own iptables script trying to get it going...here what i have soo far in it...just starting
    SPECS:
    RedHat 7.2
    2.4.19 Kernel
    iptables-1.2.3

    #######################################
    #!/bin/bash

    echo 1 = > /proc/sys/net/ipv4//ip_forward
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

    # Remove any existing rules from all chains.
    iptables --flush
    iptables -t nat --flush

    # Unlimited access on the loopback interface
    iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUPUT -o lo -j ACCPET

    # Set the fefault policy to Drop
    iptables --policy INPUT DROP
    #######################################
    Now... to get this to run on start-up here is what i did but it didnt start up it gave me an error.
    chown root.root /etc/init.d/firewall
    chmod u=rwx /etc/init.d /firewall

    And when i restart i get an error... which is
    [gloworange]"iptables: execvp: Permission Denied
    rc. Starting iptables: Failed"[/gloworange]
    I also have this line sh /etc/init.d/firewall at the end of my "rc.local" file
    How can i fix this??? Or get them to start up propeply!!!

    EDIT: > OOPPPPPPSS guys i forgot to mention the original iptables script that came installed already on my system in the "/etc/init.d/" i moved that to somewhere else.... was i suppose to do that or just leave them there???

    How i fixed the problem!!!

    Hello...

    Just thought i would tell anyone if they ever get this problem starting up their firewall script the future I fixed it by :

    chown root:root /etc/init.d/firewall and
    chmod 775 /etc/init.d/firewall
    and this, but not sure if this helped or not...

    chmod u=rwx /etc/init.d /firewall
