Question IPTables

Hi guys,

I need to find out some information about iptables. I'm kinda starting from scratch not having much *nix experience. I have a project that involves iptables, and I don't really have a clue about them. Could anyone point me in the direction of any good websites that explain it?

Many thanks

man iptable
Thats a starting place, explains a little, tells you the commands etc.

http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.n...-tutorial.html Seems like a decent tutorial

I also have a Linux security cookbook from O'reily that gives quick and dirty ways to use iptables (and ipchains for earlier kernels)

If you're just looking to set up NAT, Masquerading, or firewall scripts, I recommend fwbuilder.
