firewalls are too complex to teach in a simple manner, even examples of ruleset files can be overwhelming so your best bet is to read some manpages, literature and do some experimenting, (within a virtual environment I would reccomend, vmware and virtualbox are nice make sure it's a host-only network) also try exploring other firewalls such as pf (bsd wall but the sourcecode can be salvaged to be made to work in linux if i'm not mistaken but i haven't been able to find the souce code for pf as of now) and ipcop

Actually my former manager suggested to send me some iptables book titles a few days ago, that he thought would help me to understand the iptables and how to configure them. And that's also something I am planning to learn, after I have become a bit familiar with the GUI Firestarter and IPCop. I was hoping someone on this Forum is familiar with Firestarter.

Thank you for the iptables link though.
Appreciated.

Oh, I am sure about that. Ya, it is a complex subject.
But I am just hoping to become more familiar and a bit more comfortable.
I believe I can learn anything that I like to learn about.
