debugging iptables with traced packets

posted on 2016-08-10 19:14

For debugging iptables (make all interactions of a packet in the netfilter chains visible via syslog!), tracing helps quite a bit.


modprobe ipt_LOG # this is for ipv3
modprobe ip6t_LOG # this is for ipv6

ICMP tracing

For tracing ICMP packets:

# IPv4
iptables -t raw -A OUTPUT -p icmp -j TRACE
iptables -t raw -A PREROUTING -p icmp -j TRACE
# IPv6
ip6tables -t raw -A OUTPUT -p icmpv6 --icmpv6-type echo-request -j TRACE
ip6tables -t raw -A OUTPUT -p icmpv6 --icmpv6-type echo-reply -j TRACE
ip6tables -t raw -A PREROUTING -p icmpv6 --icmpv6-type echo-request -j TRACE
ip6tables -t raw -A PREROUTING -p icmpv6 --icmpv6-type echo-reply -j TRACE

ping the destination server with its firewall from the source server and let run tail -f /var/log/syslog | grep TRACE in parallel.

UDP tracing with netcat

iptables -t raw -A PREROUTING -p udp -s -j TRACE
iptables -t raw -A OUTPUT     -p udp -s -j TRACE

Change to the IP where your source server comes from.

On the destination server do:

nc -ulp 12345

On the source server do:

nc -u <dst_server_ip> 12345

and type a bit and hit enter.

Now you should see in /var/log/syslog on the destination server what happens to your packets.

This is a NICE diagram I stumbled across here:

iptables: list installed modules

posted on 2015-10-18 23:47:45

I will get some proper output for that when I revisit that posting.

For now:

echo; echo Available Modules:; \ls -1 /usr/lib*/xtables | \grep -v -e '[A-Z]\+'; echo; echo Available Actions:; \ls -1 /usr/lib*/xtables | \grep -e '[A-Z]\+'

iptables: sole config

posted on 2015-08-03 17:21:27

DISCLAIMER: This is almost a complete ripoff of this answer here.

Usually when ending a iptables rule with something like -j LOG --log-prefix "dropped:", this information will go straight to the general syslog file. This creates quite some clutter, depending on the rules your firewall has in place.


if ( $msg contains 'IN=' and $msg contains 'OUT=' ) 
then { 

& ~ is deprecated in the new rsyslog, you should use stop instead.


        rotate 30

                service rsyslog rotate > /dev/null

Note: The prefix is set to 10- to catch it before it reach the default rules (i.e. named 50-defaults).

iptables: definitive basics

posted on 2015-03-07 16:12:02


Most of this is from the manpage anyway (man iptables), this write-up is simply aimed at getting the topic better into my head.

iptables and alternatives

iptables is the basic firewall solution on all linux-systems. (To be exact, it is the frontend for the netfilter part in the kernel, but you do not need to know that.) ipchains does also exist, but you can only choose one of both, so do yourself a favour and use the former. ipchains can also only do stateless firewalling, where each packet is looked at independently. Opposed to this is stateful firewalling which iptables can do. Stateful packet inspection, or dynamic packet inspection can also do work based on connection states, see next part on some more explanations.

Discussing anything besides iptables currently is more or less moot:

  • 2.4.x kernels and above run iptables
  • 2.2.x kernels run ipchains
  • 2.0.x kernels run ipfwadm.

This will change with nftables, which should arrive with kernel 3.13 AFAIK. By then another posting like this one will become necessary, I fear. :)

connection states

iptables can switch packets by ip data, as well as connection (stream) states. 'connection', 'connection stream' and 'stream' are synonyms in the following. Easiest these are explained with parts of TCP's three-way handshake, but keep in mind there is also UDP and ICMP. See here.

    the first packet of a connection stream, i.e. a SYN packet
    stream is classified as NEW
    a connection was initiated through a SYN packet
    SYN/ACK'd through a second packet in reverse
    then all following packets of this stream are of this state
    if an already ESTABLISHED connection stream spawns a new connection
    the new connection will be RELATED
    example is FTP's data channel set up by an ESTABLISHED control channel
    packets having no state and being unidentifiable
    packets marked with the raw's table NOTRACK target show up as UNTRACKED
    i.e. for traffic on port 80 of a highly frequented webserver, to save resources.
    Sidenote: 'related' streams cannot be tracked either!


If you have absolutely no idea on how to build an iptables FW by yourself, try fwbuilder, which is a GUI where you enter your rules. The result can be compiled afterwards into an iptables script. Do not forget to install the fwbuilder-ipt package, too, which you need to compile the iptables rules. There does also a backend exist, to create a pf FW script, along with others.

iptables system structure

There exist three building blocks:

  1. tables
  2. chains
  3. rules

Each table contains a set of chains, where each chain is an assortment of rules. The chains are parsed rule after rule, if no rule matches the default policy will be applied. If all rules are parsed or not, depends on rule design.

The basic tables are filter, nat and mangle. There also exist raw and secure. Usually you can forget everything besides filter (which is the default table, if you choose none it will be used) and maybe nat sometimes.

The mangle tables is interesting for marking packets and rule-based routing, to implement traffic engineering for QoS. If you have no idea what this is about, leave that stuff alone. :)

default tables and chains, ordering

Here's a list of all tables with all default chains along with an explanation which chain will be active on which packets.

filter = default table
    INPUT - packets destined locally
    FORWARD - routed packets
    OUTPUT - packets with external destination

nat = looked up when packets initiate a new connection
    PREROUTING - alters packets ASAP at arrival
    OUTPUT - alter locally generated packets before routing
    POSTROUTING - alter packets just before they go out

mangle = packet alteration 
    INPUT - alter incoming packets
    PREROUTING - alter incoming packets before routing
    OUTPUT- alter locally generated packets before routing
    FORWARD - packets being routed through the box
    POSTROUTING - alter packet after routing applied

raw = add exemptions from connection tracking, table looked up prior to anything else
    PREROUTING - all packets arriving on all interfaces
    OUTPUT - packets generated by local addresses

security = MAC networking rules, selinux stuff, called after filter table
    INPUT - incoming packetsj
    OUTPUT - alter locally generated packets before routing
    FORWARD - alter packets routed through the box

If this is rocket science, you can try the wikipedia graph here.

default commands / flags

These are to be used as presented in order here.

select your table

# omitting means implicit '-t filter'
-t <table>
    specify table

day-to-day commands

-L [<chain>]
    LIST chains + rules for current table

-S [<chain>]
    SHOW rules' code being active for current table

-I <chain> [<rulenumber>] <rule>
    INSERT rule at rulenum, prepend if no rulenum given

-A <chain> <rule>
    APPEND rule to given table
    (most often -I is needed, as append rules often don't even get hit)

-D <chain> <rule>|<rulenumber>
    DELETE rule for current table and given chain
    (--line-numbers for lookup helps a lot here)

-Z [<chain> [<rulenumber>]]
    ZERO packet counts

Lesser used:

-R <chain> <rulenumber> <rule>
    REPLACE command at line <rulenumber> (remember --line-numbers?)

cleanup commands

These are needed, in this order, to create a new, clean layout:

    FLUSH all rules
    delete all chains (flush previously!)
    set default POLICY (DROP? REJECT? ACCEPT?)
    create a NEW user-defined chain

After FLUSHING, deleting and setting INPUT and OUTPUT to default POLICY -j ACCEPT, you have effectively deactivated iptables.

parameters for rule creation

Here a lot could be written, but that is better left for googling. Be it on the -p, -s, -d flags, all you need is the internet.

However there is not a lot to be found on the -m documentation or which modules are present at a system at all.

To get some sort of overview what can be done with the netfilter modules being present on your linux system:

for i in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/net/netfilter/*; do echo "\e[33;1m$(basename "$i")\e[0m"; strings "$i" | \grep -e description -e depends| sed -e 's/Xtables: //g' -e 's/=/: /g' -e 's/depends=/depends on: /g'; echo; done

That is ugly, but worth a look.

Further, if you wonder if a specific module / match / -m flag is possible on your system, try this:

iptables -m <modulename> --help

I.e. limit is present, as can be seen at the end of the help output:

[sjas@nb ~]$ iptables -m limit --help
iptables v1.4.21

Usage: iptables -[ACD] chain rule-specification [options]
       iptables -I chain [rulenum] rule-specification [options]
       iptables -R chain rulenum rule-specification [options]
       iptables -D chain rulenum [options]
       iptables -[LS] [chain [rulenum]] [options]
       iptables -[FZ] [chain] [options]
       iptables -[NX] chain
       iptables -E old-chain-name new-chain-name
       iptables -P chain target [options]
       iptables -h (print this help information)



[!] --version   -V              print package version.

limit match options:
--limit avg                     max average match rate: default 3/hour
                                [Packets per second unless followed by 
                                /sec /minute /hour /day postfixes]
--limit-burst number            number to match in a burst, default 5
[sjas@nb ~]$ 

Whereas iplimit is not:

[sjas@nb ~]$ iptables -m iplimit --help
iptables v1.4.21: Couldn't load match `iplimit':No such file or directory

Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
[sjas@nb ~]$ 

That way you also get an easy overview on how to use a module in question, since info on the -m flags is basically non-existant on the iptables man page.

actions on packets

What happens to a packet is chosen through these:

-j <target>
    move packet to chain which is specified as JUMP target
    or use ACCEPT, DROP or REJECT targets
    RETURN used in a built-in chain tells that the chain policy decides the packet fate
    RETURN used in a user-defined chain tells to proceed in the superior chain with the next rule
    (after the one which let us jump into this user-defined chain in the first place)

-g <chain>
    if a packet is RETURNed from the GOTO chain accessed via -g, it will jump to the last chain before accessed with -j
    if you end up in a built-in chain, and no rule can be found, the default policy will hit

    if no action is specified, the rule is still nice to have for debugging: (and 'watch'-ing iptables output)
    although nothing happens, the packet counter is active, showing you if it matches or not

additional parameters

    show rulenumbers in first column, helps when using -D
    verbose mode
    numeric mode: ip's/ports are shown without DNS or service resolution
    exact numbers, means no kilo or mega sizes

These can also be specified i.e. -L -vnx.

Or -vnxL.

a working example

A sample configuration with some sane defaults can be found here now. I have also included colored/noncolored output and a watch shortcut for checking chains for activity easily.

Place the following into /etc/init.d/firewall, if you do not use systemd.

colored iptables output

posted on 2015-02-27 00:32:21

To get colored iptables output, try this monster:

iptables -L -vnx --line-numbers | sed ''/Chain.*/s//$(printf "\033[33;1m&\033[0m")/'' | sed ''/[ds]pt:.*/s//$(printf "\033[31;1m&\033[0m")/'' | sed ''/[ds]pts:.*/s//$(printf "\033[31;1m&\033[0m")/'' | sed -r ''/\([0-9]\{1,3\}\\.\)\{3\}[0-9]\{1,3\}\(\\/\([0-9]\)\{1,3\}\)\{0,1\}/s//$(printf "\033[36;1m&\033[0m")/g''

Ugly as shit could ever be, but only way I found out how this can be done. Also a little buggy, as some colors are a bit off, but still better than vanilla.

UPDATE: some fixes and better coloring and way more regex madness

iptables -L -vnx --line-numbers | \
sed ''/Chain[[:space:]][[:graph:]]*/s//$(printf "\033[33;1m&\033[0m")/'' | \
sed ''/^num.*/s//$(printf "\033[33m&\033[0m")/'' | \
sed ''/[[:space:]]DROP/s//$(printf "\033[31m&\033[0m")/'' | \
sed ''/REJECT/s//$(printf "\033[31m&\033[0m")/'' | \
sed ''/ACCEPT/s//$(printf "\033[32m&\033[0m")/'' | \
sed -r ''/\([ds]pt[s]\?:\)\([[:digit:]]\+\(:[[:digit:]]\+\)\?\)/s//$(printf "\\\1\033[33;1m\\\2\033[0m")/''| \
sed -r ''/\([0-9]\{1,3\}\\.\)\{3\}[0-9]\{1,3\}\(\\/\([0-9]\)\{1,3\}\)\{0,1\}/s//$(printf "\033[37;1m&\033[0m")/g'' | \
sed -r ''/\([^n][[:space:]]\)\(LOGDROP\)/s//$(printf "\\\1\033[1;33m\\\2\033[0m")/'' | \
sed -r ''/[[:space:]]LOG[[:space:]]/s//$(printf "\033[36;1m&\033[0m")/''

And something to copy paste more easily, slightly modified again:

iptables -L -vnx --line-numbers | sed ''/Chain[[:space:]][[:graph:]]*/s//$(printf "\033[33;1m&\033[0m")/'' | sed ''/^num.*/s//$(printf "\033[33m&\033[0m")/'' | sed ''/[[:space:]]DROP/s//$(printf "\033[31m&\033[0m")/'' | sed ''/REJECT/s//$(printf "\033[31m&\033[0m")/'' | sed ''/ACCEPT/s//$(printf "\033[32m&\033[0m")/'' | sed -r ''/\([ds]pt[s]\?:\)\([[:digit:]]\+\(:[[:digit:]]\+\)\?\)/s//$(printf "\\\1\033[33;1m\\\2\033[0m")/''| sed -r ''/\([0-9]\{1,3\}\\.\)\{3\}[0-9]\{1,3\}\(\\/\([0-9]\)\{1,3\}\)\{0,1\}/s//$(printf "\033[36;1m&\033[0m")/g'' | sed -r ''/\([^n][[:space:]]\)\(LOGDROP\)/s//$(printf "\\\1\033[1;33m\\\2\033[0m")/'' | sed -r ''/[[:space:]]LOG[[:space:]]/s//$(printf "\033[36;1m&\033[0m")/''| sed ''/CATCH-DROP/s//$(printf "\033[31m&\033[0m")/''

Unban IP from Fail2Ban

posted on 2014-11-07 12:26:50

If you want to remove an IP from the fail2ban ban list, i.e. the second one in this excerpt:

(Output of iptables -L -n)


Chain fail2ban-ssh (1 references)
target     prot opt source               destination         
DROP       all  --             
DROP       all  --            
RETURN     all  --             

First do a fail2ban-client status to determine the jailname fail2ban uses:

|- Number of jail:  1
`- Jail list:   ssh-iptables

It's ssh-iptables here.

Now simply unban the ip:

fail2ban-client set ssh-iptables unbanip
