I'm trying to set up a firewall with support for snort, and it is dropping all of my packets when I add the QUEUE target. I've made it like this, but the QUEUE target is not allowing the packets to be processed any further:
-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -j QUEUE -A INPUT -j ACCEPT # It's not allowing anything past QUEUE, as you can see below in the count. > iptables -I INPUT -nv pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 6707 395K ACCEPT tcp -- * * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 tcp dpt:22 933 138K QUEUE all -- * * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 0 0 ACCEPT all -- * * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
I'm eventually going to change it to forward, but I'm just trying to get it working for now. I start snort like so:
snort -Q -D -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
EDIT: More Information
When I run it, it still sees the packets without having an iptables QUEUE target rule, but when I add a QUEUE target, it starts losing all of my packets.

So, it says inline, but the it says it's using bond0. Inline should not require an interface, right?
