Re: iptables

Anyways... another example of the high customizability of linux. I wanted to set up a custom firewall rule on my computer that would block all requests to port 80 of any server that is outside the campus. Just a one command job. Iptables is an excellent packet filtering tool with several updates over it's old cousin (or should I say ancestor) ipchains

Isn't a firewall a separate piece of software? Separate from Linux?

BTW, another spoof on Check out :-)

They seem to have made booble much more interactive.
