Description of problem:
Hi Bugzilla,

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):
iptables-1.2.8-8.72.3, kernel-2.4.20-27.7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. kernel-2.4.20-27.7
2. iptables-1.2.8-8.72.3
3. allow outgoing packets (ports ssh /telnet) from LAN to any 
external host
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.
