You're looking for firewalling on Red Hat 7.1, that's using iptables, type "man iptables" or see the Iptables tutorial for more. Accepting/rejecting traffic by MAC address is possible with iptables. Examples for Iptables firewalls are at http://www.linuxguruz.org/iptables/, or search linuxdoc.org .
