we use recent to control ip traffic.
kernel 2.6.18-308.13.1.el5 : all is OK
kernel 2.6.18-308.16.1.el5 : the first recent statement causes an error.
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m recent --set -p tcp --dport 80
iptables: Unknown error 18446744073709551615

The man pages say: recent is supported.

CentOS 6: is OK

Knows anyone more?

Best regards
