Description of problem:
Iptables module ipt_CONNMARK/ipt_connmark is very useful iptables filter that was accepted into mainline ipv4/netfilter module with linux kernel version 2.6.10. When used in combination of iptables userland module ipp2p (http://www.ipp2p.org/), connmark can be used to rate-limit or measure p2p traffic that traverses a RHEL firewall.
(see http://www.ipp2p.org/docu_en.html and http://www.knowplace.org/pages/howtos/traffic_shaping_with_linux/examples.php)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. look for ipt_CONNMARK in RHEL4U2 kernel SRPM
I am testing my own backport of ipt_CONNMARK to RHEL4 at this time, hope to soon have working patches to attach to this bug/enhancement request.
still no CONNMARK in RHEL4 U6, anyone know if this will be backported? Or should
we migrate to RHEL5?
