Hi everyone!

I have installed iptables.
I created the file rc.iptables in /etc/rc.d

root@[lfs]:/etc/rc.d/init.d# ls ../
init.d  rc0.d  rc1.d  rc2.d  rc3.d  rc4.d  rc5.d  rc6.d  rc.iptables  

After this I run:
root@[lfs]:/etc/rc.d/init.d# iptables start
Bad argument `start'
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.

The BFLS 6.0 says:
For instance when you run:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables start
 the firewall will be restarted just as it is upon system startup. The 
status target will present a list of all currently implemented rules.

 Do I have to do something else to start iptables?
