Hi,

For a while, I've noticed that whenever I restart iptables, any ssh connections I have eventually die after a period of time and/or bytes transfered. I never thought much of it until i realized it's been breaking an application that I've spent ages debugging (app and database reside on different servers - communicate with established TCP connections)

Can anyone point me in the direction of what causes this? I thought might have something to do with connection tracking, but tcp connections still appear in /proc/net/ip_conntrack

OS :
Redhat ES 4 - 2.6.9-11.ELsmp
iptables-1.2.11-3.1.RHEL4
Fedora Core 4 - 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4
iptables-1.3.0-2.i386


Cheers,

Marcus
