Description Paul Morgan 2003-09-01 14:37:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Support for the TARPIT target is included in the official iptables-1.2.8-*
release (user tools) that is included in Severn and Taroon. However, the RH
kernel is missing the kernel tools support for that target.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Append the following after "allow traffic" entries:
   iptables -A INPUT -j TARPIT

Alternatively, attempt to `modprobe ipt_TARPIT`

Actual Results:  iptables: No chain/target/match by that name

Result of modprobe is "modprobe: Can't locate module ipt_TARPIT"

Expected Results:  rule should have been loaded into the kernel filter in order
to tarpit connections 

Result of modprobe should have been that kernel module is loaded.

Additional info:

/lib/iptables/libipt_TARPIT.so is included in the beta, but the kernel module
ipt_TARPIT.{o,h,c} is missing
