How to Access denied in NATting to public IP?


How to Access denied in NAT traffic to Public IP?

I am newbies in Linux. I have installed RH entropies server and did NAT for Internet sharing and working is fine. Now I want to denied access in few IP users to access Internet. So how can access denied it? Also I want to block certain messenger like yahoo, MSN then how to block to run by public IP OR to block certain messenger?

Your small tips highly appreciate.

well, the usual way would be to setup firewall rules (read : iptables rules) to drop some request from your "clients". It is actually what you RH done to NAT, mean, to write some iptables rules.
All you have to do is to add some rules to "drop" ips _before_ the nat rules.
Blocking messenger is more complex. You have to find the correct port number to block (as example, MSN uses 1863) , but these days most messenger uses port 80 (which is also HTTP, making it really hard to block). You could also block the messenger's server hostname, but it would hard to find out and I doubt it will work that great.
