Hi again guys,
I have a number of related files under it and among them is:
ip_ct_tcp_timeout_established with a value of 1800000.
The value should have been 18000 secs (5hrs), right!
How come I have two extra 0s in there? Is it set in millisecs?
The /proc/net/ipconntrack database is showing timeouts <18000 secs though!
I noticed one more thing...the date of the file is being continuosly

Yes, it is selected as M ... meaning I need to recompile that module only.
Won't just changing the value in the file bring the new value into effect?
Like setting the ip_conntrack_max value...
Lastly, do I need to do "make modules && modules_install" or is there a
way to recompile that ONE module only? as this would same me valuable
