AFO IPTables permanent fix instructions for Dreampi 1.5

Post#1 » Tue Nov 22, 2016 8:16 pm

For those who were wanting a permanent fix to the IPTables issue for dreampi 1.5 and want it now I have the solution for you :)

first you'll need to login
username: pi
password: raspberry

then type

sudo nano -w /etc/rc.local

you'll be brought into an editor

go down right above "exit 0" and right below "fi"

type in the following line

sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -d 63.251.242.131 -j DNAT --to-destination 146.185.135.179

Then hold down "Ctrl + X" you'll be prompted to save just type "Y" press enter,
then it will ask you the file name, rc.local should already be entered for you so just hit enter again

reboot your pi and your done!

Excellent information Xiden
Thank you, no more retyping

Not sure if your address differs from mine but

"sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -d 63.251.242.131 -j DNAT --to-destination 146.185.135.179"

Worked for me

Your ips are correct. Sorry I had a typo when making this post. I corrected mine :)

And while you're SSH'ing into your Dreampi, for those with the default username/password, I highly recommend to change it to a different one:

You mean you mistyped on the file? You can just reopen the file again in the editor and make changes and save again if you want

If you want to remove changes in the NAT-chain:
sudo iptables -t nat -F
sudo iptables -t nat -X

Another way of having iptables persistent:
Add the rule:
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -d 63.251.242.131 -j DNAT --to-destination 146.185.135.179

Installl iptables-persistent:
sudo apt-get install iptables-persistent

It will ask if you want to save the iptables ipv4 rules, press yes

Done

If you are not happy run:
sudo iptables -t nat -F
sudo iptables -t nat -X
Then:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure iptables-persistent
You will save a blank NAT-chain (default).

This was the rule I asked to be added for dreampi 1.5, so this is
nothing new under the sun,
but sadly there was a bug in dreampi 1.5 so this rule wasn't added correctly
during startup, dreampi 1.6 has a fix for this.

@Xiden, your instructions did the trick. I was just checking to see if I could connect, and to my surprise there were actually 2 fellow DC-Talk members online, so played a few rounds of AFO. AWESOME
