Request to translate this page

This discussion needs help.
Tip: To get this fixed sooner, use {{Proposal}}.

Hello, I added language and translations tags as explained in the translation wiki page. Would like to do it in French, since I'm on it these days it could be profitable to everyone ;). Could anyone, with the right to do so, validate it please ?

As far as I can see, it's mature.

Nftables#Deleting_rules

... To delete a rule, you first need to get the handle number of the rule. This can be done by using the -a flag on nft: ...

The -a flag is not used anywere in the document, someone skilled can correct this issue

syntax error, unexpected flush, expecting string

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 5 August 2022.

This line:

root #echo "nft flush ruleset" > backup.nft

should be:

root #echo "flush ruleset" > backup.nft

otherwise, this error happens:

root #$ sudo nft -f backup.nft
backup.nft:1:5-9: Error: syntax error, unexpected flush, expecting string
nft flush ruleset
    ^^^^^

But the reason that I'm not changing this myself in the page is: 1. I am running the above on non-gentoo linux (nftables v0.4, kernel 4.0.0-g39a8804) and 2. it may have changed with the new versions of nftables thus the original command may still work as expected and without error in gentoo. --EmanueLczirai (talk) 17:17, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm thinking that those commands came from here https://wiki.nftables.org/wiki-nftables/index.php/Operations_at_ruleset_level#backup.2Frestore --EmanueLczirai (talk) 22:23, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Tested on nftables-0.6-r4 and fixed as suggested Cjmayo (talk) 16:12, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

Still a stub?

Has this been fleshed out enough so that we can drop the stub marking? --TitanOfOld (talk) 17:07, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

IPTables support

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I believe this module - 'IP tables support (required for filtering/masq/NAT)' - is not really necessary to run nftables. On the other hand, the setting 'Netfilter nf_tables reject support' is indeed needed or nftables won't start. Finoderi (talk) 09:50, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback ! Please use the “{{talk|open}}” template and end posts with four tildes to insert signature “~~~~”. I've added the talk template (I know, it's missing from the previous posts too xD), but I don't know how to add another person's signature. Ris (talk) 09:04, 2 August 2021 (UTC)
OK. Finoderi (talk) 09:50, 2 August 2021 (UTC)
