If all of these solutions still leave you hanging, watch your log files as you attempt to SSH in from another machine. The log messages should give you an idea of the problem:

Conflict with ipchains
If you start iptables and get an error like this
# /etc/init.d/iptables start ipchains and iptables can not be used together. [WARNING]
your iptables rules or firewall won't work properly. In this case, someone has either manually loaded the older and now outdated ipchains kernel module or configured the system to load it automatically. This older netfilter module, not fully supported under Fedora Core, can be checked with the following command:
Docker and iptables
Estimated reading time: 5 minutes
On Linux, Docker manipulates rules to provide network isolation. While this is an implementation detail and you should not modify the rules Docker inserts into your policies, it does have some implications on what you need to do if you want to have your own policies in addition to those managed by Docker.
If you’re running Docker on a host that is exposed to the Internet, you will probably want to have iptables policies in place that prevent unauthorized access to containers or other services running on your host. This page describes how to achieve that, and what caveats you need to be aware of.
Add iptables policies before Docker’s rules
Docker installs two custom iptables chains error applying iptables rules andand it ensures that incoming packets are always checked by these two chains first.
All of Docker’s rules are added to the chain. Do not manipulate this chain manually. If you need to add rules which load before Docker’s rules, add them to the chain, error applying iptables rules. These rules are applied before any rules Docker creates automatically.
Rules added to the chain -- either manually, or by another iptables-based firewall -- are evaluated after these chains. This means that if you expose a port through Docker, this port gets exposed no matter what rules your firewall has configured. If you want those rules to apply even when a port gets exposed through Docker, you must add these rules to the chain.
Restrict connections to the Docker host
By default, all external source IPs are allowed to connect to the Docker host. To allow only a specific IP or network to access the containers, insert a negated rule at the top of the filter chain. For example, the following rule restricts external access from all IP addresses except :
Please note that you will need to change to correspond with your host’s actual external interface. You could instead allow connections from a source subnet. The following rule only allows access from the subnet :
Finally, you can specify a range of IP addresses to accept using (Remember to also add when using or ):
You can combine or with or to control both the source and destination. For instance, if the 3d contr terrorism episode-2 bluetooth daemon listens on both andyou can make rules specific to and leave open.
is complicated error applying iptables rules more complicated rules are out of scope for this topic. See the Netfilter.org HOWTO for a lot more information.
Docker on a router
Docker also sets the policy for the chain to. If your Docker host also acts as a router, this will result in that error applying iptables rules not forwarding any traffic anymore. If you want your system to continue functioning as a router, you can add explicit rules to the chain to allow it:
Prevent Docker from manipulating iptables
It is possible to set the key to in the Docker engine’s configuration file atbut this option is not appropriate for most users, error applying iptables rules. It is not possible to completely prevent Docker from creating rules, and creating them after-the-fact is extremely involved and beyond the scope of these instructions. Setting to will more than likely break container networking for the Docker engine.
For system integrators who wish to build the Docker runtime into other applications, explore the project.
Setting the default bind address for containers
By default, the Docker daemon will expose ports on the address, i.e. any address on the host. If you want to change that behavior to only expose ports on an internal IP address, you can use the option to specify a different IP address. However, setting only changes the default, it does not restrict services to that IP.
Integration with Firewalld
If you are running Docker version 20.10.0 or higher with firewalld on your system with enabled, Docker automatically creates a zone called and inserts all the network interfaces it creates (for example, error applying iptables rules, ) into the zone to allow seamless networking.
Consider running the following command to remove the docker interface from the zone.
Restarting daemon inserts the interface into the zone.
grep ^ip ipchains 49516 0 (unused)
You need to remove ipchains error applying iptables rules the kernel with this command:
To save dealing with this problem in the future, make sure that iptables is set to load automatically and ipchains is not:
# chkconfig --list
Errors when applying firewall fatal error c1075 I try to enable firewall rules I get these errors in both 10.0.1 and 10.2.0:
Error: Could not activate firewall configuration:

In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'UTC' for 'GMT/0.0/no DST' instead

The error applying iptables rules one is different depending on the updates I have installed or plesk version but the iptables thing is usually the same error.
What is the problem? Is it this issue? http://kb.odin.com/5228 Does it need a kernel update? I have no idea how to do that, I have no "vzup2date utility" as the articles says.
Edit: and that address [email protected]is a bad joke, you will get delivery failure !
grep ip_forward net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
which is the same as this:
# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward 0
To enable packet forwarding, open /etc/sysctl.conf in a text editor and make this change:
# Controls IP packet forwarding net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
Save the file, exit the text editor, and force sysctl to re-read /etc/sysctl and boot with the proper changes:
Try rebooting your firewall again. This allows packets to be forwarded in the kernel and traverse network interfaces. Even though iptables may be set up correctly, this can keep it all from working on a network firewall or multihome/router-based system.
This change will persist until you turn off packet forwarding (=0) through the same mechanism.
SSH Access Denied
If you set up iptables on a stand-alone workstation to allow SSH access but you cannot get in, something is obviously wrong, but what? Your problem may exist at one of several levels. You need to narrow the problem down to look at one part of the system at a time.
Fixing this is a process of elimination. First, error applying iptables rules, turn off iptables:
# /etc/init.d/iptables stop Flushing firewall rules: c7 ultra dma crc error [ OK ] Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: mangle nat filter [ OK ] Unloading iptables modules: [ OK ]
Try logging in now. If you can get in, you've probably got a bad rule or a conflict in one of the "filter" error applying iptables rules chains. Check RH- Firewall-1- INPUT rules carefully and fix anything that's wrong.
If this doesn't work and you're running TCP wrappers as well, do you have an ALL:ALL entry in /etc/hosts.deny? Even if you have an appropriate entry in /etc/hosts.allow, a typo in the allow entry will let the deny file's ALL:ALL override the allow setting. Comment out the ALL:ALL and try again to test for this type of problem.
Still not working? It's probably not the firewall. Did you set up the SysV init scripts for sshd to be persistent (in your default run level) across reboots? Check to see if it's running and configured to "be up" in your default run level:
