IP Tables, How to block range of ip address from ip table
Hi, chillispot
Im using chillispot software and for that using UBUNTU server my problem is
eth0 connected to Internal Network
eth1 connected to WIFI Router

chillipoint clients are accessing internet throw wifi... but they can able to access out internal network also, i want to prevent internal network immediately.

in ip table
iptables -A INPUT -s "$BLOCK_THIS_IP" -j DROP

Greetings, you could try something like

iptables -i eth1 -d -j DROP
This will drop everything coming from the interface connected to the wifi router and going to the internal network.

~ $ iptables -m iprange --help
iprange match options:
[!] --src-range ip[-ip]    Match source IP in the specified range
[!] --dst-range ip[-ip]    Match destination IP in the specified range

Well if you

iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -d -j ACCEPT
before the

iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -d -j DROP
it will allow packets to go to the gateway and not the internal network. The other way is to use the iprange module, but if you're using an embedded system like openwrt, chances are you don't have that one.
