F16 iptables with new eth naming

Is there a new syntax in writing iptable rules now that eth0 and eth1 are named differently in F15 & F16. I know the new names, but I want to make sure to use what the iptables will understand, and if it can use these new raw network interface names.

The minimalist firewall GUI won't distinguish between my inward and outward facing interfaces, so I have to go into iptables and do it myself.

Re: F16 iptables with new eth naming

I see from viewing other threads that some are finding solutions through other means, like making Fedora revert to using the eth-n names. At least then I would be certain that the iptables firewall is happy. Another suggestion was referring to source by MAC address of the interfaces.

I will try that, or both, but for now I've re-installed F14 on my machines. When support for 14 stops I'll have to see if any of the lost functionality due to the adoption of the new Gnome has been regained and if it's worth staying with Fedora.

Thanks to all that have read my thread.
