IPTables/Conntrack


I upgraded to the 2.6.27 kernel and iptables to 1.4.2 but can't seem to get CSF to run and i believe its because of conntrack not being found:

Code:
error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_icmp_timeout" is an unknown key
error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close" is an unknown key
error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_time_wait" is an unknown key
error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_last_ack" is an unknown key

net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_max = 262144

HTH

[edit] might have been a bit terse - that option in your kernel config is marked as "not set" - which could be the cause of the errors you see.
The module is not there at all.

in "make menuconfig" you see this as:

IPv4 connection tracking support (required for NAT)

I don't know which modules are used or required by the script/program (CSF) you mention - I suppose it is this:
http://www.configserver.com/cp/csf.html

...if you happen to run a normal desktop computer or laptop - you don't need:
-programs like this
-CONNTRACK at all

for a router or server its a different story
