Could you elaborate more on the problem you're seeing? I'm guessing
it's the situation when addresses have been manually removed from the
list? Old entries do have to be overwritten once the table is full, of
Just to give you and others a heads-up, I'm working on a hash-based
version of ipt_recent which is much more efficient. I'm currently
testing it for both correctness and speed but hopefully I'll have a
patch before too long. The new version will also give the option to
pick on a per-table basis the address to use (source or destination).
