Linux kernel bothering message
Posted on 2002-03-06
I have a machine running mandrake linux 8.1 and I have compiled kernel 2.4.16. For a long time now, I am getting these strange messages in the console :
ipt_unclean: TCP flags bad: 4
(approx every 2 secs)
they appear to be coming from the kernel, as nothing seems to stop them. they pop up over any program, in any console. the only way I can actually get some work done is in X, where i don't see any console directly.
How can i disable them ? What do they mean ?
It would seem strange to think that my machine receives bad tcp packets at this rate.
