    Conntrack weirdness

    Hi @ all,

    i have a phenomenon for which i have no statement. Its the following situation:
    After a while >2h of doing p2p on a seperate machine (in QoS this machine is set to lowest by ip) i stop p2p an shutdown this machine (its completly powered off !). So when i now watch the QoS chart this p2p machine (some connections) is still in its current QoS class. Even 1 hour later its still there, not in its assigned class but in the default QoS class. This machine is also displayed as a connected device in the status device list (even 1 hour after shuting down) ! When i reboot the router than everything is normal. Whats the problem here ?

    Hi @ all,

    so after more testing with this thing i figured out that this has something to do with the conntrack/netfilter settings. Now (after doing p2p >2h) i only disconnect the internet (wan/pppoe) instead of booting the router and now there is no entry in the staus->device list anymore but there still some connections from this ip open in the QoS monitor ! When i than look in the status of the conntrack/netfilter i see that there is an amount of "Established" connections and compare it to the shown amount of connections of this ip in QoS monitor ->> it matches ! Hmm...
    So i thought maybe decreasing the value (14400 def ->3600) of "Established" connections may help, but it doesn't help. Anyone ?

    P.S
    Is there a way to manually disconnect established connection of a specific ip ?

    Hi @ all,

    after watching a bit more i found out that this not only happens to p2p traffic its also with icq/msn connections ! They remain in QoS monitor even if the computer is power off ! I dont know whats going on here :-(
