After I have the filter set up to my liking, is there any downside to issuing something like

iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
In order to avoid automatically enabling the firewall upon reboot? I was able to add my SSH rules easily because the extension is nicely modularized, but I would really like to firewall it on boot because by my family members are not going to turn on airplane mode if they happen to reboot, nor do I want them to be messing with the KUAL extensions anyway.

We like to avoid modifying files in the Amazon image, but other than the chance that this change will cause problems installing a future update, I don't know of any problems.

Keep a copy of the current (Amazon) saved iptables file, just in case you have to revert to them in the future.

Just saw this when executing showlog -f, is there any reason for concern? The packets are exiting via wlan-out

-- Before activating firewall:
Code:
   140517:012540 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:listening:host = 23.23.189.4:
   140517:012540 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:goto:srv=23.23.189.27, port=33434:GOTO server
-- After activating:
Code:
   140517:013011 phd[2981]: E udp_tph:sendto_error:to = 23.23.189.27:33434, ret = -1 (of 149), errno = Operation not permitted (1):
   140517:013011 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:restart_udp_tph_rcvr:ret = 6:
   140517:013013 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:listening:host = 23.23.189.4:
   140517:013013 phd[2981]: E udp_tph:sendto_error:to = 23.23.189.4:33434, ret = -1 (of 136), errno = Operation not permitted (1):
   140517:013013 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:restart_udp_tph_rcvr:ret = 6:
   140517:013015 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:listening:host = 23.23.189.4:
   140517:013015 phd[2981]: E udp_tph:sendto_error:to = 23.23.189.4:33434, ret = -1 (of 136), errno = Operation not permitted (1):
   140517:013015 phd[2981]: I udp_tph:restart_udp_tph_rcvr:ret = 6:
Last 3 messages repeat every 2 seconds until firewall is enabled again or airplane mode activated.

Here are the fw stats:
Code:
[root@kindle root]# iptables -L wlan-out -nv | head -n5
Chain wlan-out (1 references)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination
    0     0 DROP       all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            23.0.0.0/12
  154 25269 DROP       all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            23.20.0.0/14
    0     0 DROP       all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            50.16.0.0/14

Just shows that it is working as intended.

I.E: the packet "drop" target is the cause of the "operation not permitted" message.
Which is correct, the purpose is to not permit the Kindle to call home in that address range.

- - - -

Note: It would be more correct (and/or better) if I had used the "reject" target rather than the "drop" target.

But, the stock Kindle firmware build did not include the "reject" target. Duh...

This will prevent the downloading of updates, but that is not its purpose.

Use the "Backdoor Lock" to control updates instead of this.

My PW is associated with an Italian account (mine), should I change anything in the filter list or is the "Big Brother" universal?

Thanks knc1

The list is getting fairly old, there may have been some additions to the Amazon network.

But once established, they are part of their network system (mostly served by their "cloud" service - an international abstraction).
I do not expect that there are any "country local" addresses.

When reading an e-book the BBB filter blocks the translation feature and wikipedia, there's no way to enable these functions while BBB activated?

Those features must be provided by Amazon (perhaps by Amazon proxy'ing them).

The filter rules that are installed by default allow the user two choices:
* Call home
* Don't call home

- - - -

Note:
If you have BBB installed to block over the air updates -
rather than preventing communications with the Amazon network, then;

There is a better solution to that control problem - the "Backdoor Lock"

Unlocks custom ACX widgets. Also provides one for Google Translate.

ACXs enable options in the popup dialogs. I am sure someone could write a widget to lookup wikipedia without using Amazon servers.The translation replacement should already do so.

I install the google translator, thanks eschwartz .

About wikipedia.acx, do you think about making acx with automatic search feature like amazon? Will be a good feature.

And eschwartz, can see this topic? http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...79#post2910979 is about duokan and fonts.

We have readers with adjustable margins and margin adjustment packages for the Kindle.
Also, font packages.

Install those, which we support, rather than install Doukan.

PS: Eschwartz already replied to the post you linked to above.
