    I set rules for CSF v6.47 a on a dedicated running CENTOS 5.10 and WHM 11.40.1 with mod_security configured, all was working normally until lfd crashed and started sending notifications every 5 minutes attempting the automagicaly restarts and failures.

    Actual Situation:

    CSF is running on this machine
    Do NOT flush the firewall

    root@server [~]#
    root@server [~]# /etc/init.d/lfd restart
    Stopping lfd: [ OK ]
    Starting lfd:
    Error: You have an unresolved error when starting csf. You need to restart csf s uccessfully before starting lfd (see /etc/csf/csf.error)
    [ OK ]

    root@server [~]# /etc/csf/csftest(dot)pl
    Testing ip_tables/iptable_filter...OK
    Testing ipt_LOG...OK
    Testing ipt_multiport/xt_multiport...OK
    Testing ipt_REJECT...OK
    Testing ipt_state/xt_state...OK
    Testing ipt_limit/xt_limit...OK
    Testing ipt_recent...OK
    Testing xt_connlimit...OK
    Testing ipt_owner/xt_owner...OK
    Testing iptable_nat/ipt_REDIRECT...OK
    Testing iptable_nat/ipt_DNAT...OK

    RESULT: csf should function on this server

    CSF Error log:

    root@server [~]# cat /etc/csf/csf.error
    Error: Error processing command for line [1854] (6 times): [iptables: Unknown error 4294967295], at line 1854 in /usr/sbin/csf

    By the way line 1854 of csf reads:

    root@server [~]# sed -n '1854p' /etc/csf/csf(dot)pl

    &syscommand(__LINE__,"$config{IPTABLES} $verbose -A INPUT $ethdevin -p tcp $statemodule NEW --dport $port -j $accept");

    Any Help Please, i am stuck. Thanks
