I'm afraid you would need to expand a lot on your query here, there's not enough to work out what you actually mean. You might want to do some background reading on iptables?? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo

Is it too dificult to type IPTABLES and press enter in google ?

Always, search your query in google and linuxquestions.org before creating a new thread.
You could use the following method to limit your google search to linuxquestions.org

IPTABLES site:linuxquestions.org

Whilst I certainly agree with your sentiments I do find it interesting how "New to Linux" seems to also cover "New to internet forums", as if the new subject matter eliminates the need to understand how to use the internet

Indeed ... anyway, here's the RHEL manual HOWTO http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html. See 42.8, 42.9
