Hi all

I was using older firehol 1.226 for a long time. Now I wanted to upgrade to 1.256 .

My firewall script that worked flawlessly before now caused lots of errors.

The errors came from the fact that I hat several limits with more than 3 digits, e.g.

service xxxx accept with limit 1000/s 1000

In the newer version, this caused iptable names longer than 30 characters, which are obviously not allowed.

I modified these lines to show 999/s 999 instead (which does not make much of a difference), but I think it would be wise to generate more abbreviated names for these targets.
