I have been intending to implement this for a few days now, since I
needed to deploy something to limit service-denying attacks against
client machines of mine, and ipt_recent was suitable.

I would be interested to know what, if any, thoughts others have on a
way to express the use of ipt_recent matches in firehol.

I am currently working out my preferred syntax, and intend to post
something in the near future -- if not beaten to it.


Open-mindedness is a quality which will always exist where desire
for knowledge is genuine. It only fails where other desires have
become entangled with the belief that we already know the truth.
