    How to edit Rc.Local the correct way

    I wanted to add a few function to my RC.Local file so it will auto port forward
    my port 49355 (for enhanced-bittorrent) But i have to login and add
    iptables -I INPUT 7 -p tcp --dport 49355 -j ACCEPT manually every time.
    I just waned a correct way to add it into rc.local so i can have that port open every time the router is rebooted ? by the way i am running 1.0.7.8 custom kfrug firmware. Thank you

    Hi Fullback,

    If you read /opt/etc/rc.local (with cat) you should see that KFurge has added a section:
    # Poke holes in the firewall for certain applications
    with
    /opt/etc/init.kc/iptables_mldonkey.sh

    So, I think it would be wise to edit that one in stead of rc.local. But, if you want to stay on the safe side, you'd better edit rc.local, because you can easily recover from a problem with it.

    Now, for the edit part, if you have searched this forum you will have come across nano or joe. Use one of these. (ipkg install nano, etc)

    Regards,
    Marc

    thanks

    Hey, thanks i like using vi its cool. I also installed nano very neat as well. But i got it to always open the ports as i requested. Just added

    #Opening ports for Enhanced-Ctorrent
    iptables -I INPUT 7 -p tcp --dport 49355:49355 -j ACCEPT

    to rc.local file.
