Updated arptables_jf packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The arptables_jf utility controls the arpfilter packet filtering code in the Linux kernel.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, both the "mangle-hw-s" and "mangle-hw-d" options required the use of the "--arhln" option. However, even if the "--arhln" option was specified on the command line, the "arptables" command did not recognize it. As a consequence, it was not possible to use those two options successfully. These updated packages fix this bug and the "--arhln" option can now be used together with the mangle hardware options.
When the "-x" command line option (exact values) was used along with the "-L" (List rules) option, the arptables utility did not list rules but issued an error message saying "-x" option is illegal with "-L". With this update, the arptables utility now uses the "-x" option when listing rules.
Users of arptables_jf are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
