He must configure the firewall in such a way that it will meet the system and users requirements for both incoming and outgoing connections, without leaving the system vulnerable to attacks. Iptables is a Linux command line firewall that allows system administrators to manage incoming and outgoing traffic via a set of configurable table rules. Iptables uses a set of tables which have chains that contain set of built-in or user defined rules. Thanks to them a system administrator can properly filter the network traffic of his system. Until kernel version 2. For example, to check the rules in the NAT table, you can use: iptables -t nat -L -v -n 3. Be very careful when running this command as you can accidentally block your own IP address. The -A option appends the rule in the end of the selected chain. In case you only want to block TCP traffic from that IP address, you can use the -p option that specifies the protocol. If you prefer to use the longer option you can use --delete. Block Specific Port on IPtables Firewall Sometimes you may want to block incoming or outgoing connections on a specific port. Below is an example how to block traffic to Facebook. Note: If you are a system administrator and need to apply these rules, keep in mind that your colleagues may stop talking to you : First find the IP addresses used by Facebook: host facebook. You may change the ports with the ones you need. You can edit the limit and limit-burst to your own specific requirements.

As you can see, the input chain has processed 11GB of packets and the output chain has processed 17GB.

The forward chain, on the other hand, has not needed to process a single packet. Output — This chain is used for outgoing connections.

For example, if you try to ping howtogeek. The caveat Even though pinging an external host seems like something that would only need to traverse the output chain, keep in mind that to return the data, the input chain will be used as well. When using iptables to lock down your system, remember that a lot of protocols will require two-way communication, so both the input and output chains will need to be configured properly.

SSH is a common protocol that people forget to allow on both chains. To see what your policy chains are currently configured to do with unmatched traffic, run the iptables -L command. As you can see, we also used the grep command to give us cleaner output. In that screenshot, our chains are currently figured to accept traffic.

If you would rather deny all connections and manually specify which ones you want to allow to connect, you should change the default policy of your chains to drop. Doing this would probably only be useful for servers that contain sensitive information and only ever have the same IP addresses connect to them. Accept — Allow the connection.

Drop — Drop the connection, act like it never happened.
