1.102. iptables

Updated iptables packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The iptables utility controls the network packet filtering code in the Linux kernel.
Bug Fixes
BZ#590186
Previously, ip6tables did not support Portable Transparent Proxy Solution (TPROXY). Due to this lack, the IPv6 transparent proxy support was missing and IPv6 transparency was not available. This update adds this option.
BZ#644273
Previously, the command "service iptables save" did not restore the context for the save file and the save backup file. It also used /tmp for the temporary file. Due to the wrong context of the save and save backup file, there could be an error the next time the save functionality is used. This update restores the context and also saves the temporary files correctly.
Enhancement
BZ#642393
Previously, iptables did not support auditing. Due to this issue, information for remote address/port, target address/port, protocol, and result (success/fail) could not be recorded as an audit event. This update adds the required audit support. This enhancement depends on the presence of auditing support in the kernel.
All iptables users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.

Bug Fix
BZ#786871
The option parser of the iptables utility did not correctly handle the "-m mark" and "-m conmark" options in the same rule. Therefore, the iptables command failed when issued with both options. This update modifies behavior of the option parser so that iptables now works as expected with the "-m mark" and "-m conmark" options specified.
All users of iptables are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
