Confused about TCP States and timeouts in ConnTrack

Fri Aug 30, 2013 6:06 pm


I currently have Connection Tracking turned on and I've set the timeouts defaults as recommended on the manual.

Now my doubt is the following:
What does happens when an Established TCP session reaches the end of it's time out?

Speculation from my part:
Does this means that if I'm downloading a file for a whole day+, the download will stop once it reaches the default 1 day timeout?

I would really appreciate if this could be clarified.

Cnfiguration is related to time out, or if there is traffic for a time X it will finish. See more details in ... n_tracking
I try to help !
