Hello,

I was working on ulogd2 and getting mad with connection filtering in
IPv6 (IPv4 being ok). After analysis, it seems there is a problem.

I've modified the conntrack_filter in utils by applying the following
patch. It does nothing but inverting the logic of filtering and adding
filtering to destination.

If I do :

$ telnet 2::1

then

root@tiger:/home/eric/git/netfilter/libnetfilter_conntrack/utils# ./conntrack_filter 
TEST: waiting for 10 events...
 [UPDATE] tcp      6 432000 ESTABLISHED src=2::1 dst=2::1 sport=35738 dport=22 src=2::1 dst=2::1 sport=22 dport=35738 [ASSURED]

Am I missing something ?

Kernel is a 3.4.0:
Linux tiger 3.4.0-netfilter #22 SMP Sat Jul 14 21:39:33 CEST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

BR,

It's a bug in libnetfilter_conntrack autogenerated BPF code to filter IPv6.

This should fix it:

The changelog provides some details. I've tested it here, works for
me.
