I`m trying to migrate from DNSMasq to ISC DHCP because of failover.
My problem is that MAC Addresses (hardware) are in different format than
iptables accept (i`m executing script via execute() which call iptables
-A FORWARD -m mac --mac-source .... -j ACCEPT).
In ISC DHCP logs format is correct:
DHCPREQUEST for 10.59.146.180 from 00:d0:b8:0c:ba:d8 via eth0
But 'hardware' (i`m using binary-to-ascii(16, 8, ":",
substring(hardware,1, 6));) gives me:
0:d0:b8:c:ba:d8 which is incorrect for iptables:
# iptables -A FORWARD -m mac --mac-source 0:d0:b8:c:ba:d8 -s
10.59.146.180 -j ACCEPT
iptables v1.4.4: Bad mac address "0:d0:b8:c:ba:d8"
My question is how to get correct (for iptables) format (same as in dhcp
