When running the following script as user
ec2-user, I get the error message
iptables v1.4.18: can't initialize iptables table filter: Permission denied (you must be root)
#!/bin/sh # Offending IP as detected by mod_evasive # Add the following firewall rule (block IP) $IPTABLES -I INPUT -s $IP -j DROP
How can I run
iptables as a non-root user to block a IP address?
NB: This script is usually called by mod_evasive
