the packet filter plugin was not allowing me to add any rules. i had two in place but was not able to add a third or more.
to attempt to correct the problem i downloaded the .jar file and uploaded the plugin. after a successfull upload i am no longer able to see the packet filter settings (Server > Server Settings > Packet Filter).
i have since tried to delete the plugin and reload it. sometimes after deleting it, it still shows up in plugins. sometimes after reloading it, it disappears from plugins.
the security auditviewer shows each time i have deleted or reloaded packet filter.
any help on getting packet filter back up and operational would be very much apperciated. thanks!
