    Hi,

    I am having problem with number of connections on my server. I frequently get the error in /var/log/message stating that "servers kernel: ip_conntrack: table full, dropping packet." I have currently set the value 45000 in ip_conntrack_max.

    Whenever connections are reached to maximum I found the number of entries from one IP address (it varies each time). What my concern is can I block such connections automatically using csf? Currently I have installed APF on the server?

    Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Infopro,

    I have installed csf on one server and will replace APf on the other server too.
