I released the RC3 of kernel 5.6 for testing today.
- X5000 and X1000: NETFILTER_XT_MATCH_MULTIPORT. Multiport matching allows you to match TCP or UDP packets based on a series of source or destination ports: normally a rule can only match a single range of ports. For example blocking of ports 20, 21, 22, and 23 with multiport:
The multiport support is also important for Fail2Ban.
Code: Select all
iptables -t filter -A INPUT -p tcp -m multiport --dport 20,21,22,23 -j DROP
Fail2Ban is an intrusion prevention software framework (IPS) that protects computer servers from brute-force attacks.
