I want to script some iptables rules only for a specific application like a personal firewall on windows, but the iptables module is not working on multicore CPUs.

Is there another way?

Commands like the following are not working on SMP systems:
iptables -A OUTPUT -m owner --uid-owner 315 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT
 
iptables -A OUTPUT -m owner --uid-owner 315 --cmd-owner firefox -p tcp -m multiport \
--dport 80,443 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

Probably yes, but not with iptables and not with such control grain as with IPtables. You can try to use SELinux network acl features.

Don't ask me, I never tested it :-)
