Help with connection tracking!! [message #121323] Fri, 27 May 2005 10:36

Hi to all,

I badly need a confirmation about what I have written below. I want to know if I got it right.

"when a protocol is unknown to the ip_conntrack module (if you don't have or don't want to use helper conntrack modules like that for TCP or FTP), connection tracking adopts a default method for handling these packets. It resembles the handling of UDP packets. When this default behaviour is used, even a packet that is not the SYN packet is considered as NEW. Any packet in the reverse direction (reply packet) will set the connection state to ESTABLISHED.

Any input will be very much appreciated..

Warm regards,
