i have just taken on yet another linux box ( bringing me to a grand total of 5 )
its setup is as follows: ( sorry about my ascii drawings
LINUX box -------- local clients ( as router )
|___win9x clients ( samba )
basically the ipchains rule book is over flowing with junk and its slowing it down so i want to clear it up.
i have flushed every thing out and i am now rebuilding
i want to block samba access to the box from outside will this line work:
ipchains -A input -s ! 192.168.0.0/16 -d 0/0 139 -p tcp -j DENY
what do you think? would that be ok?
