Allow access to server from only 1 IP address using iptables
I have a server located remotely that I'd like to protect by allowing access to only my IP address (on any port). Currently anyone can access the server using ssh, http, and any other services that my server is running. (The reason I need to protect it for now is that it's a test/development server and really only needs to be accessed by me.)
The downside of doing this is every time my desktop IP address changes (from where I access the remote server), I would need to update the iptables configuration. (This could be a hassle, but based on my limited knowledge it seems to be the best way to allow access from only myself.)
Could anyone share how to allow access to my server using iptables from only my IP address and on any port? Also, if there are any pitfalls of doing it this way, I'd appreciate hearing about it too.
