      Description

      The current version of the puppetlabs/firewall module does not support inversion of the iptables recent extension. For example, a firewall resource cannot be constructed to generate the rule:

      -A CUSTOM -m recent --name tracking ! --rcheck -j SET
      

      This inversion is supported by the underlying iptables command and is useful in setting up rate-limiting and preventing brute-force DDOS attacks.
