Hi all,

A new release of my firewall. It doesn't include any major changes just 
some polishing and tweaks.

You can grab it from:
http://rocky.eld.leidenuniv.nl/arno-iptables-firewall/arno-iptables-firewall_2.0.1d.tar.gz

CHANGELOG:

Version 2.0.1d (November 16, 2012)
----------------------------------
+ Reintroduce DNS fast fail option + add additional option 
(DNS_FAST_FAIL_ONCE) to allow plugins to use it
+ Added nat-loopback plugin for local nets using existing 
NAT_FORWARD_TCP and NAT_FORWARD_UDP rules.
+ Added new main command 'status-plugins [name]'. Useful [name] values 
are: dyndns-host-open, multiroute, nat-loopback, rpc, traffic-accounting 
and traffic-shaper.  When [name] is specified, only that plugin is shown.
+ Added outbound-snat plugin to support when a NAT'ed external interface 
has multiple IPv4 addresses, it may be desirable to specify which 
internal IP's or CIDR's use which external IPv4 addresses for outbound 
connections.
! Fixed modprobe() function when using kmod. Apparently kmod doesn't 
echo anything (to stderr) when a module is not found?!
! Fix logging dropped packets matching (ie, not just TCP) for 
LAN_INET_FORWARD_CHAIN and DMZ_INET_FORWARD_CHAIN.
+ Added new variables LAN_INET_DEFAULT_POLICY_DROP, 
DMZ_INET_DEFAULT_POLICY_DROP and LAN_DEFAULT_POLICY_DROP to define the 
default policies. When undefined the 'automatic' policy is the default 
as with all previous versions.
* Allow plugins to maintain a dynamic chain (e.g. MINIUPNPD) in the nat 
table and not get automatically flushed on a restart.
* Improved traffic-accounting & dyndns-host-open plugins with a new host 
cache mechanism

Njoy!
