I recently tried to use the iptables time module with hardened-sources 2.6.X and
I was unable to use it because itp_time.so did not exists. I looked through the
kernel config and there isn't even an option for it presented (in fact, even in
the .config file, I could not identify a variable for it).
I found a reference on netfilter.org saying that this module is not built by
default, but that it could be included through their patching system?
Anyway, the time module sounds like a nice idea and I think it would be a nice
option to have in the kernel for iptables users. Does anyone know how to add
this to our kernels?
Steps to Reproduce:
this would require more maintenance than it's worth
you should be able to find the patch here:
it'll prob be integrated into iptables eventually
It's in the man page for iptables as if it's a standard feature.
