    Need help to set up firewall on web min...Urgent


    Hi

    I am using linux firewall through webmin and I would like to setup the linux
    firewall (IP Tables) where my dedicated server only accepts traffic from one
    ip for example ip 123.123.123.123 (example), so in webmain how would I set
    it up?

    So anybody has configured it through IPtable then please let me know about it.

    Setting up IPtables through webmin can be problematic. One wrong number and you can no longer access the machine...

    But my solution was to set up an old PC and put the Smoothwall firewall package on it; configuration was really easy, 'cos the IP tables stuff is already configured, you just need to tell it what IP addresses to use and where to forward ports. I think mine runs on a P150 with 96Mb of RAM and a 10Gb hard disk ('cos the 850Mb hard disk died...).

    lol, yes, I use Smoothwall to do that too... I limit access to certain ports so they can only be used from a particular IP address.

    The good news for me (and bad news for you, I'm afraid) is that I dont have to be an expert in IPtables to do this. I cant, therefore, help you. But I did propose a different solution.
