I have read the connection tracking article from the site below. I have a
query regarding the connection tracking for each tcp connection.
The state table is maintained at */proc/net/ip_conntrack for the tcp*. Can
we access that entries in a PRE_ROUTING hook ? If yes then how can we access
it ? Reading a file when you are in kernel space(PRE_ROUTING hook) is not
recommended then how we can read entries?
For e.g. there are 2 active tcp connections in an ESTABLISHED state.
When a packet come to the interface i want to look up in the table and check
to which tcp connection it belongs?
Thanks n Regards,
