    1. Did you try it with
    Code:
    -m quota
    ?

    2. If yes, check if you have ipt_quota.o module installed.

    3. If not try inserting that module

    4. If that module is not there, re-compile your kernel to get this module by enabling this option: CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_QUOTA in kernel's netfilter configuration part.

    Ajay,

    If you want the modules to be thr on the kernel, then u have to customize ur kernel.

    1. Download the latest kernel source (kernel.org)
    2. Configure it for the required support
    3. Compile and install the modules.
    4. Reboot ur system with the latest kernel compiled
