SubjectRe: ip_conntrack & timing out of connections
the tcp dimeout is 60 seconds and the ip_conntrack timeout is 120 seconds.

I ran into this myself a couple days ago and have sent the info to Rusty
and to the netfilter mailing list (although only to the list this morning
so I don't know if there is a response there yet)
