Description From 2006-07-01 14:56:14
Trying to setup a connlimit rule on iptables-1.3.5-alt3 under x86_64 sisyphus.
That's what i got:

# iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --syn --dport 21 -m connlimit --connlimit-above 3
--connlimit-mask 32 -j REJECT
iptables: Unknown error 18446744073709551615

Looks like
1. error reporting on x86-64 is bogus;
2. required kernel module is not loaded.

The 'connlimit' match is not yet available in upstream kernels and does not seem
to be planned for 2.6.18.

are there any updates? in Server 4 module connlimit isn't work. 
any plans?
