           Summary: osf module doesn't always identify operating system
           Product: netfilter/iptables
           Version: patch-o-matic
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Mandrake Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: unknown
        AssignedTo: laforge at netfilter.org
        ReportedBy: casueps at hotmail.com

I have the osf module and I have loaded the fingerprint file from  
into /proc/sys/net/ipv4/osf with the osf_load.sh script  
I also have the following rule  
iptables -I FORWARD -j DROP -p tcp -m osf --genre Windows --smart  
But when a Windows box that is behind the firewall with that rule tries to  
access web sites, it is sometimes allowed and sometimes not. For example, they 
can access www.google.com but not es.yahoo.com. 
Linux boxes can access every web site as always. But I think that rule should 
block every tcp connection from Windows clients, so I think it doesn't always 
recognize correctly the operating system.
