[Users] Hardware node - Iptables firewall with ipset

Hi Folks,

I've spent quite sometime googling but am unable to answer the
following question.

Are there any problems with running a IPtables firewall using ipset
functionality on the hardware node?

I already know that these modules haven't been virtualized, but I
don't delieve this should matter for the
hardware node, please correct me if this assumption is incorrect.
Obviously I will need to build my own
kernel as the ipset patches are not applied to the stock OpenVZ kernels.

Is anyone out there doing this? if so could you please pass on your

Best Regards
