I'm moving a firewall script from dd-wrt to OpenWRT (forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=328075&highlight=man+whitelist).
This firewall script requires this kernel module ("ipt_mac").
Most web searches for this kernel module give outdated results.
Example dated 2004: https://forum.archive.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=439
The closest I've found so far is: Simple Firewall rule not working, why? - #3 by TheBigD
It states that "iptables-mod-ipopt" contains "libipt_mac", but not "ipt_mac".
So what OpenWRT package contains the MAC address kernel module ("ipt_mac")?
Any pointers appreciated.
LGA1150, thank you for your response.
If you don't mind, I have another question.
I had searched both "System->Software" and https://openwrt.org/packages/index/kernel-modules
but failed to locate "ipt_mac".
In the future, how would I check if a specific kernel module was available and/or installed?
Via SSH, login to your router and issue the command: modinfo ipt_mac.
vermagic: 5.4.111 SMP mod_unload ARMv7 p2v8
In the above example if I did modprobe ipt_mac to try and load the module, xt_mac is what would actually be loaded (alias/name).
You can use lsmod | grep xt_mac to see if it's loaded or not. The /lib/modules/*/ directory is interesting if you want to find out what modules are available.
LGA1150, thank you for the instructions.
I appreciate the education.
Again, thank you.
