iptables recent module echo "" > /proc/net/xt_recent/recent_blocked fails


i'm trying to clear the /proc/net/xt_recent/recent_blocked (iptables recent module log file) and everything i have tried have failed, i have tried everything as root


echo "" > /proc/net/xt_recent/recent_blocked

sudo -s 'echo "" > /proc/net/xt_recent/recent_blocked'

yields the following error:


echo: write error: Invalid argument

what is happening?, why it is not possible to write to that file?

thanks for your help
