Subjectstealth firewall problem
Hello!
I have a server using 3 network cards, 2 of them used as a bridge with
the folowing script:

INTERIOR_IFACE=eth2
EXTERIOR_IFACE=eth1
BRIDGE_IFACE=br0

brctl addbr $BRIDGE_IFACE
ifconfig $INTERIOR_IFACE 0.0.0.0 promisc up -arp
ifconfig $EXTERIOR_IFACE 0.0.0.0 promisc up -arp
brctl addif $BRIDGE_IFACE $INTERIOR_IFACE
brctl addif $BRIDGE_IFACE $EXTERIOR_IFACE
ifconfig $BRIDGE_IFACE 0.0.0.0 up -arp


I want to limit the number of the tcp connections/hour, so i am using
the folowing script:

iptables -N tcpHandler

EXTERIOR_IFACE="eth1"
INTERIOR_IFACE="eth2"


SCALE="hour" # second, minute, hour, etc.
TCPRATE="20" # Number of TCP connections per $SCALE


/sbin/depmod -a
/sbin/modprobe ipt_LOG

echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

iptables -A FORWARD -i $EXTERIOR_IFACE -p tcp -m state --state NEW -j
LOG --log-prefix "INBOUND TCP: "
iptables -A FORWARD -i $EXTERIOR_IFACE -p tcp -m state --state NEW -j
ACCEPT

iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -i $INTERIOR_IFACE -m state --state NEW -m
limit --limit $TCPRATE/$SCALE --limit-burst $TCPRATE -j tcpHandler
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -i $INTERIOR_IFACE -m state --state NEW -m
limit --limit 1/$SCALE --limit-burst 1 -j LOG --log-prefix "Drop TCP
after $TCPRATE conn"
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -i $INTERIOR_IFACE -m state --state NEW -j DROP
iptables -A tcpHandler -p tcp -j ACCEPT


The problem is that i made a lot of connections from the computer
connected on eth2 but the firewall seems to not exist. Even more,
somethimes i get the "kernel panic" message with some errors on the
bridge kernel module. This is happening on the 2.6.8-2-386 kernel that
comes with debian Sarge.

I tried to update to 2.6.15 included in debian testing and then to
2.6.16 from the kernel.org ftp server, to be sure that i compiled
correctly the bridge support. After that, the klogd jumped to 99% of cpu
and my machine freozed many times. Surprisingly, klogd didn't log anything.
Then, i gave a "strace -f klogd" and, after a few seconds this message
was looping:

read(0, "", 4095) = 0
read(0, "", 4095) = 0
read(0, "", 4095) = 0
read(0, "", 4095) = 0

I also tried with a virtual machine to be sure that the hardware was ok,
and i got the same result.
I googled it and i found that i need a symbolic link from
System.map.2.6.16 to /boot/System.map for klogd. After i did this the
klogd is still keeping my cpu at 100%. I also see that there are some
problems with reiserfs, so i tried with ext3, but i got the same result.
I also observed that when i log on the other interface, the logging is
working without problems, but when i log the packets that pass the
bridge, nothing's happening.

here is the kernel config part where i set the networking support:
