Description of problem:
I have just upgrated the kernel in my gateway from kernel-2.4.18-27.7
to kernel-2.4.20-27.7 release and I am having problems with
established connections handled by iptables.
I am having problems with ssh and telnet sessions estabished from my
LAN with external hosts since I have updated the kernel. It worked
fine with kernel kernel-2.4.18-27.7 but since the last update
established connections are closed in a period of time.
Any ideas ???
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3. allow outgoing packets (ports ssh /telnet) from LAN to any
4. allow incoming packets from related connections
5. establish any ssh / telnet session to a remote host
6. in a preiod of time the session is closed
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.
Closing as "not a bug" for now.
