RHEL8.6GA: issues with asymmetric routing
We are using a router based on CentOS Stream 8 and nft with iptables-services. In some cases we have asymmetric traffic passing through this router. After upgrading to 4.18.0-365 we have noticed weird port mapping during FORWARD. Rolling back to 4.18.0-348.7.1.el8_5.x86_64 does not show this behavior.
We can reproduce the behavior.
We did not see this behavior prior to kernel 4.18.0-365 and we are using such configuration already for years. We are not sure if it's a bug or a feature. Has something changed and should we untrack such traffic or is it a bug?
