iptables -> ip6tables

Of course ip6tables has different rules to iptables. I am trying to limit established TCP conns to x amount.

I was using this before

sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --syn --dport 80  -m connlimit --connlimit-above 10 -j REJECT
And a command line load tool to generate enough load to always hit 10.

Is there a equivalent in ip6tables?

Many Thanks

If that works for you with iptables, it will work with ip6tables too. So, just replace iptables with ip6tables and you are good to go. Of course, it goes in different file, not in same file where you store iptables.
