    Using Linux to control network traffic


    Hello, I'm somewhat a noob on this area. I need a linux machine to control the incomming and outgoing traffic from my network.

    Internet ----> Linux Machine ----> My Network

    The linux machine has to relay ALL incomming and outgoing traffic, except the traffic I choose not to relay. (Ex. Block outgoing port 25)

    Can anyone tell my if this is possible? And how should I do this.

    Thank you.

    It should be possible. You need to look into squid and iptables as these are the tools that will help you achieve what you want to do.

    Not sure you need to look at squid but iptables for sure

    Check out this iptables tutorial
