    enforcing iptables

    How do I enforce within iptables for the following rules..

    Sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --syn --dport 22 m connlimit --connlimit-above 2 -j DROP

    Sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --syn m connlimit --connlimit-above 3 -j DROP

    Thank you

    Most distros read a config file for iptables at bootup. In Fedora it's /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config. You can edit that file to insert your new rules to make them permanent. Or if you have the rules already manually input in a terminal, you can create an updated config file by 'iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config'.
