Re: IPTABLES firewall?
You can do somethings like this :
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -s myinternalnetwork -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp --dport a-authorised-port -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp --dport an-other-authorised-port -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -j DROP (or REJECT)
state "related" permit module like ip_conntrack_ftp to work.
