IP netfilter configuration

IPv6: Netfilter Configuration (EXPERIMENTAL)Edit

    • depends on INET && IPV6 && NETFILTER && EXPERIMENTAL


  • Option: NF_CONNTRACK_IPV6
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IPv6 support for new connection tracking (EXPERIMENTAL)
    • depends on EXPERIMENTAL && NF_CONNTRACK
      Connection tracking keeps a record of what packets have passed through your machine, in order to figure out how they are related into connections.
      This is IPv6 support on Layer 3 independent connection tracking. Layer 3 independent connection tracking is experimental scheme which generalize ip_conntrack to support other layer 3 protocols.
      To compile it as a module, choose M here. If unsure, say N.


  • Option: IP6_NF_QUEUE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IP6 Userspace queueing via NETLINK (OBSOLETE)
      This option adds a queue handler to the kernel for IPv6 packets which enables users to receive the filtered packets with QUEUE target using libipq.
      THis option enables the old IPv6-only "ip6_queue" implementation which has been obsoleted by the new "nfnetlink_queue" code (see CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK_QUEUE).

The targets


  • Option: IP6_NF_FILTER
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Packet filtering

      The REJECT target allows a filtering rule to specify that an ICMPv6 error should be issued in response to an incoming packet, rather than silently being dropped.
      To compile it as a module, choose M here. If unsure, say N.


  • Option: IP6_NF_TARGET_NFQUEUE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) NFQUEUE Target Support

  • Option: IP6_NF_MANGLE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Packet mangling
    • depends on IP6_NF_IPTABLES
      This option adds a `mangle' table to iptables: see the man page for iptables(8). This table is used for various packet alterations which can effect how the packet is routed.
      To compile it as a module, choose M here. If unsure, say N.


  • Option: IP6_NF_TARGET_MARK
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) MARK target support
    • depends on IP6_NF_MANGLE
      This option adds a `MARK' target, which allows you to create rules in the `mangle' table which alter the netfilter mark (nfmark) field associated with the packet packet prior to routing. This can change the routing method (see `Use netfilter MARK value as routing key') and can also be used by other subsystems to change their behavior.
      To compile it as a module, choose M here. If unsure, say N.


  • Option: IP6_NF_TARGET_HL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) 'HL (hoplimit) target support'

      This option adds a `HL' target, which enables the user to decrement the hoplimit value of the IPv6 header or set it to a given (lower) value.
      While it is safe to decrement the hoplimit value, this option also enables functionality to increment and set the hoplimit value of the IPv6 header to arbitrary values. This is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS since you can easily create immortal packets that loop forever on the network.
      To compile it as a module, choose M here. If unsure, say N.


  • Option: IP6_NF_RAW
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) 'raw table support (required for TRACE)'

      If you want to compile it as a module, say M here and read <file:Documentation/modules.txt>. If unsure, say `N'.
