Shibby Tomato 109 Error: iptables-restore: line failed

    I just installed Shibby’s Tomato version 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-109 K26 USB AIO-64K on my ASUS RT-N66U and when I setup my port forwarding I noticed the error message iptables-restore: line 49 failed and another time iptables-restore: line 51 failed. I only have two ports forwarded along with the remote access set to allow and a specific port set for it.

    Can anyone tell me what might be causing the error messages and how to correct them.


    Thanks

    Update, I just removed all port forwards and disabled the remote log in feature. When I saved the settings I received error message stating that iptables-restore: line 43 failed

    Update, here is a portion of the log file that I think relates to the error messages but I am not experienced enough to understand what it means and how to correct it. Can anyone help?
    Log file:
    May 22 11:29:41 HostName user.err kernel: ipt_account [checkentry]: table found, rule network/netmask/shortlisting not match table network/netmask/shortlisting.
    May 22 11:29:41 HostName user.crit init[1]: Error while loading rules. See /etc/iptables.error file.

    Have you rebooted after your config ? (port forwarding)

    Yes, I rebooted and still have the problem. I removed 109 and re-installed 108 and all worked fine. I had this problem with my RT-N16 and my RT-N66U. Maybe a bug.

    Victek had the same problem with his RAF mod. and I think he knew the problem and resolved it (see here).

    Not the same. Victek said:
    I didn`t add string module and new rules modifiraction well it`s not the same.

    @Bill_S, please read error:
    ipt_account it`s IP Traffic module. Just go to administration -> IP Traffic Monitoring and check "Create New File
    (Reset Data)", then Save. Make router reboot for sure and will be good. It`s not a bug. Remember gold role of Tomato: If you have some problem after upgrade tomato, first of all clear nvram. If still is something wrong, then report a problem here.

    Do plan to add "string" module in future build ?

    module only - sure.
    Access Restriction based on string - have to wait for Victek`s final sources.

    @Shibby
    This problem has been around and reported already a while ago... If it's not the same one that Victek has fixed, then are you doing anything towards fixing it? Would you care to shed some more light on it beside just stating that it's not the same problem?

    My mistake, I went back and installed 109 again because I was not 100% sure I rebooted the router after I did the install and setup. I did install, reconfigured the router, saw the error messages then I rebooted the router and the problem was resolved, no more error messages.
    Sorry to have caused a problem, I hope someone will benefit from my mistake.
