Deprecated "/etc/network/options'
 
When booting Debian Etch, one of the displayed messages reads that the use
of "etc/network/options" is now deprecated and the entries should be
transferred to "/etc/sysctl.conf".

Which I did and failed.

I now get the following additional error messages:

[root@carrot log]# cat boot | grep error
Sat Nov 17 11:25:58 2007: Setting kernel variables...error: "ip_forward" is an unknown key
Sat Nov 17 11:25:58 2007: error: "spoofprotect" is an unknown key
Sat Nov 17 11:25:58 2007: error: "syncookies" is an unknown key

The errors are the three entries that were in "/etc/network/options and
are now in "/etc/sysctl.conf"

What have I <missed|misunderstood>?

As from "/usr/share/doc/netbase/README.Debian", you have to put
something like this in "/etc/sysctl.conf":


--
# ip_forward=no...
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0

# spoofprotect=yes...
net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 1
net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1

# syncookies=no ...
net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 0
--

gc :-)
