Running Apache 2, i have a php webpage and i want to be able to enter in 192.168.1.1 in a field press a submit button. Then when i press it i want to be able to ALLOW or BLOCK the ipaddress using iptables.
I'm not sure if the PHP page has to be saved to iptables.conf for the rule to apply.
I don't think so. php is supposed to call the command exactly like bash does, isn't it? In bash, you type the iptables command and it is effective straight. And iptables.conf is just a set of rules which are inserted with the iptables command anyway.
I still don't know what is wrong though.
It's really strange, all my other commands work in php, like display the time/date . . .etc. yeah your rite it's only a rule and doesnt need to be saved anywhere. I know it's taking the string in as my code displays it before the iptables command. Any suggestions for troubleshooting im stumpt?
