I am using Redhat 9.1 as a host for a virtual lan ( the host is connected to two XP machines (virtual) built in Vmware).
I am capturing packets sent from socket programs (port 2000) on the virtual XP machines through the lan and sending it to a simulator running on the Linux Machine.
Problem: I need to block the original packets and allow only the duplicates.
I tried to use ip_tables but couldn't really understand it ...(truth is i am afraid to mess up)
Virtual XP (vmware)<====Linux host =====> Virtual XP (vmware)
the simulator NS2 is on linux host
PLEASE any suggestions will be helpful... my thesis depends on it...
Thanks in advance.
