Kernel crash. Are ipt_recent and ipt_conntrack culprit?
I run RHEL3 with kernel 2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp.
Yesterday morning I started to play with iptables on
this server and yesterday evening I had kernel crash
on this server.

My iptables contains just two rules, see script below

iptables -F
rmmod ipt_recent
modprobe ipt_recent ip_pkt_list_tot=200

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 ! -s -m state --state NEW -m recent --set
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 ! -s -m state --state NEW -m recent
--update --seconds 60 --hitcount $MAXHITS -j LOG
--log-prefix "http_limit_test " --log-level="DEBUG"

I don't see reports about recent 2.4
kernel/ipt_recent/ip_conntrack crashes.
OTOH, this server worked many months without crashes
before I activate iptables.

Should I go to the latest RHEL3 kernel even I don't
see something relevant into kernel changelog? Other
