iptables help! on slackware 10.2


hi everyone,

i was running slackware 10.2 with the 2.4.x kernel. and i was running iptables 1.3.3
i installed the 2.6.10 kernel recently and upgraded to iptables 1.3.5.

in the previous version of iptables i could go to /proc/net cat ip_conntrack and see the current connection states. now i get No such file or directory???

what am i missing here.

i realize that you may need more info and i will provide once i know what that is. i can tell you that in my .config file ip_conntrack is set to =m

whats up?
im somewhat of a newbie in case you couldn't tell. but very curious to learn.

thanks for any help

Tony

If you've compiled it as a module, you may need to load it with modprobe ip_conntrack - I'm guessing the module name since I have it built into my kernel. Do you get any return from lsmod | grep 'ip'?
