If you are running kernel 2.4 or greater you can use either IPChain or IPTables.

If you are running kernel 2.2 then you can only use ipchains.

You can type uname -a and it will tell you what kernel you are running.  That information would be helpful.

You can type "iptables -V" (not sure if i am wrong) to check what is the IP table version u are running at. If you kernel support ip table, then u should be able to see the version of your ip table.

If u wish to install/upgrade IP table, you can go to http://www.netfilter.org to check out.
