I'm running a 2.4.20 (i686, configured with "make menuconfig") and I
have the following problem:
If I compile into the kernel ip_conntrack module, and its ftp and irc
extensions, I can't insert ip_nat_ftp because it "can't find
ip_conntrack_ftp module". If I want ftp nat and connection tracking, I
have to compile ip_conntrack_* as modules because it seems that ip_nat_*
are always compiled as modules instead of being compiled directly into
the kernel when requested to do so, like ip_conntrack_*.
I think it's only a makefile problem. Can you fix it for 2.4.21 ?? I see
"CONFIG_IP_NF_NAT_IRC=m" in config file, but that line doesn't exist in
Thank you very much.
To have a working FTP or IRC NAT and connection tracking, I have to
insert their modules (*_ftp and *_irc) manually with insmod or modprobe.
lsmod tells they're usage count is always 0, even if they "work". Why
can't those modules be automagically probed when required, like every
other module, for example when I add a nat or a state rule with
iptables? This inserts ip_conntrack, but not ip_conntrack_* and
ip_nat_*. And with their usage count = 0, there's a risk that rmmod -a
