Description Eric Brown 2005-11-09 13:16:13 UTC
I recently tried to use the iptables time module with hardened-sources 2.6.X and
I was unable to use it because 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 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?

Reproducible: Always

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.
