    1. Did you try it with
    -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.

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

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