I am wondering if Conntrack -D deletes the tcp connection or does it just delete the connection tracking entry?
I established an ssh to my router and then deleted the entry using Conntrack -D command. I can see that the entry gets deleted but I see that the ssh session is still alive on the terminal.
Also, I see the entry again on doing a show using Conntrack -L but this time with a different Connection ID but same ports.
Could it be that the connection gets re-initiated by the shell / ssh program on the terminal? Or is it the expected behaviour from Conntrack.
I am a newbie and not sure if this question should belong to iptables tag or not, please redirect me if that is the case.
