netfilter patch-o-matic problem


Hello to you all.

Recently i have discover that netfilter have the patch-o-matic to applay module to the iptables, i want to install the IPP2P so i can get rid of p2p trafic in my work internal network. I have 70 machines to manage the internet conection and the load of the LAN, investigating i discover the IPP2P funtionality, i went to his web page, there i read that to aply the IPP2P to the iptables i have to use the patch-o-matic, again wen to the netfilter webpage and there i learned that to use the patch-o-matic i have to connect to a cvc (http://www.netfilter.org/documentati...s-HOWTO-2.html)
Code:
# cvs -d :pserver:cvs@pserver.netfilter.org:/cvspublic login

(When it asks you for a password type `cvs').

# cvs -d :pserver:cvs@pserver.netfilter.org:/cvspublic co netfilter/userspace netfilter/patch-o-matic
ok, i tray to connect, then put in the pass but it give me the error
Code:
cvs [login aborted]: connect to [pserver.netfilter.org]:2401 failed: Network is unreachable
Is there another way to get the patch-o-matic?
Also, the howto says that i have to recompile my kernel, and that is totally new for me, i never mess up whit the kernel. Please if someone can give a link to a good howto i will appreciate it.
And one last thing, if a recompile my kernel and don't put some options that the fedora core intaller have done while installing, does other funtions of the kernel will go off? or just the modify part will apply? i don't want to lose my server for messing whit the kernel

Help please
i'm using the kernel "2.6.23.14-107.fc8" for x64 athlon

Unless you are doing something on your network that blocks this, I would expect this to be a termporary problem that resolves itself. So just try again.

Here is one set of instructions for Fedora. I can't vouch for how good it is, but you should be able to find more info through an Internet search.

First, make sure you save your old kernel and its modules! And leave GRUB set up to be able to boot to this kernel. That way, if something screws up, you can be sure you can still boot your system! I prefer to leave GRUB's default pointing to the old kernel until I am sure I have the new one working. (If you make sure you change the kernel identification string as shown in section 2.4 of the linked article and you don't manually delete the current kernel or modules, then your old kernel will be preserved.)

Your /boot directory probably contains the configuration file for your current kernel. I would start out from that for your configuration for your new kernel. If you follow the instructions linked above, first copy the current configuration file to your top level kernel source directory and change its name (in the kernel source directory, not in the /boot directory!) to .config. Note the leading "dot" in the new filename.

Good luck.
