  1. Thanks MattG and Everybuddie

    What I want to achieve is this
    I want to be using my firewall (as router, running Linux Redhart 8, iptables v1.2.6a) to accept packet from from a specific IP address say "" ELSE drop the packet

    If accepted, Route same packet to a specific IP address(A host) say with IP address
    Takes(I mean the firewall in reverse direction) packet from The Host( and route it to the the specific IP address(
    Every other -s packet should not be allowed

    And One other thing

    If I re install A linux box, I understand Iptables comes bundled with the package and that you don't need to re compile the kernel again? b'cos I have not mastered the kernel stuff and do't want to mess the one already install.

    Kindly give me a step my step rule to achieving what I want. I have hrs left to get this thing DONE for good

    If you can spare a chat period I am available on yahoo messenger for possible chat assistance. You cant believe I have not rested for the past 36 hrs trying to figure this out


    GOD is the giver of Wisdom! you care to have, Give him a call
