Re: IP spoofing protection
I wondered about the same thing...
BTW, imasq as install has almost no firewall capability unless
you add script to it. But they have cure script to autodetect
Anyway, I ended up adding several firewall scripts in ipmas style
scripts and put them in the /etc/ipmasq/rules directory.
You can see my script in www.aokiconsulting.com/pub.
After doing so, I feel like it may be easier all script in one file.
Too many small scripts.
