CONFIG_NF_CONNTRACK_ENABLED: Netfilter connection tracking support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_NF_CONNTRACK_ENABLED:

Help text

Connection tracking keeps a record of what packets have passed through your machine, in order to figure out how they are related into connections.

This is required to do Masquerading or other kinds of Network Address Translation (except for Fast NAT). It can also be used to enhance packet filtering (see `Connection state match support' below).

To compile it as a module, choose M here. If unsure, say N.
