IPTables to block outgoing TCP only and allow incoming TCP
I am new to linux iptables . I want to ask is it possible to configure iptables on linux so that we only block outgoing TCP and allow incoming TCP? If yes, can any one provide the iptable entries for that. Please help.
Any help is appreciated.
Allowing incoming traffic (general web browsing and downloading specifically)
I am trying to relax these rules a little more... but apparently in a rather unanticipated manner (?) so I got stuck...
Basically, I "just" want to use your rules to make it impossible for a group of server users to move files from the server to the general internet but still I want to allow them to move content from the internet to that server.
To be more specific, users should be able to read their e-mail, download some attachments (or livemesh content) and then use that content on the server. However, since the server also contains content not owned by the users, they should not be able to use any protocol for moving that content to their own machine...
I am stunned that I cannot find a solution using the various google searches I have tried... So sorry if I am overlooking an obvious solution, I may be using the wrong terminology or so :(
Thanks a lot in advance,
PS: sorry for replying to an old post, I just try to remain on-topic on this google-high-scoring thread.
