Probably your /proc/net/ip_conntrack contain a lot of
conection info, which should not be there at all, or should already
You should find the reason why so much entries are there.
I had similar problem, when my conntrack enabled router was sending
icmp-redirects to connected networks. The router "saw" first packets
of TCP connections and noted them in ip_conntrack table, but it didn't
see the rest (including the end) of connections, as it was redirected to
The fix was quite easy:
iptables -t prestate -A PREROUTING -j NOTRACT ....
Where "..." is the rule for the packed which should not be tracked.
