Re: Syncing iptables [state, was rules] between two servers

I've often wondered about not only synching firewall rules, but synching
the state table in /proc/net/ip_conntrack. This would be a major hurdle
crossed for firewall clustering. Synching the rules themselves is
pretty trivial from a scripting point of view. Synching the state table
on the other hand....

Is there anyone that know about how I can "sync" iptables rules on two

script that automaticly block ip adresses with iptables depending on
different conditions. When that ip adress is blocked I want it to
automaticly be blocked on another server to.
