Configuring Firewall

Post by xka »

How can I set up the firewall like this:
-Allow incoming and outgoing connections to IP (all ports)
-Deny all other outgoing and incoming connections.

I've tried doing it in the Rules section, but:
-It doesn't allow me to add port range (I've tried to enter 1:65535, but the Add button is grey)
-I'm not sure if the allow or deny rule should go first

I don't know why you would want to do this, but two simple iptables rules would do it.

Code: Select all

sudo iptables -P INPUT DROP
sudo iptables -P OUTPUT DROP

sudo iptables -A INPUT  -s -m comment --comment "All ports accepted for this IP" -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A OUTPUT  -s -m comment --comment "All ports accepted for this IP" -j ACCEPT
The policy is the last thing that will happen if the source is not :wink:
