Vuurmuur: connection killing getting shape

The main new feature of the 0.5.72 release of Vuurmuur will be the ability to kill existing connections from vuurmuur_conf. It will use the conntrack tool for this. Below is a screenshot of how it works.

Vuurmuur-conf killing a group of connections.

Currently it works only for TCP connections and UDP pseudo connections. From the connection manager IPAdresses can also be added to the blocklist. All existing connections for this IP will be killed on that action. I have yet to extend this to hosts blocked manually.
