I am wanting to learn more about the susefirewall2 AND making my own iptables list. I have a tutorial on iptables, so far it is pretty good. I am more by doing than by reading. Got any sample scripts of a basic iptable script that would run a NAT? ( with DMZ
and a web server in it ? )
I teach at a school, ended up having to do a network for my class. Worked so well that now the whole building is on it. I wish I knew what I was doing. I learned what little I know about networking in the past 4 years because I had to. I like it. Terms and methods are what is killing me. There are more variations and such to drown anyone.
I have Suse 9.0. I feel like 9.1 was bugged, too many machines acted up under it. I am looking at 9.2. 9.0 is fine, not that important really for now. One step at a time, I need function.
I can SSH into my NAT from home, I would rather go all tui if I can get that far. Right now, I had my NAT die a lightning death. I built a temp box in and have basic functions, but I want the DMZ back up. A student actually did the biggest part getting it running before and both our notes leave much to be desired.
I have read and searched till I am searched out. The variations I stated kill me. I go so far thru a how-to only to find that part of what they used does not even show up on my machine. I can handle it being in a different directory, but when it is not there at all?
I am basically new to Linux and networking, any good thoughts? ( I am a slow reader, not alot of links to links to docs please
) Examples with discriptions tell me volumes.
I can and do use Yast thru putty, I just am missing what all I need to set. I want to put 2 rules together later to set filtering for students vs admin, 2 VPNs (?) route traffic to 2 different machines for filtering to reduce the load.
Thx ahead ( I hope )
