3.
  
Actual results:
Error message:

such file or directory

Expected results:

Additional info:

-- Additional comment from twoerner@redhat.com on 2006-09-26 06:05 EST --
There is no dstlimit netfilter kernel module in the current RHEL-4 kernel and
ipt_dstlimit.h in not part of glibc-kernheaders.

Please apply to kernel and glibc-kernheaders for inclusion of dstlimit, then
reapply to iptables. 
BTW: dstlimit is not part of the standard iptables build.

Request moved to glibc-kernheaders.

Can we get the dstlimit included in iptables? 


-- Additional comment from dwmw2@redhat.com on 2006-12-07 14:18 EST --
Not a lot of point in that unless we add the feature to our kernel.

-- Additional comment from lwang@redhat.com on 2006-12-07 15:42 EST --
There are actually two requests here:
dstlimit support in kernel, and to have glibc-kernheader headerfile for
inclusion in U6.  This bug is to track the kernel header file inclusion.
So clone this RFE for dstlimit support in the kernel, and
clone this REF to include libipt_dstlimit into iptables package.
