Angry Red Hat 9.1 Packet Filtering

Hi everyone,

Here goes....

I am using Redhat 9.1 as a host for a virtual lan ( the host is connected to two XP machines (virtual) built in Vmware).

I am capturing packets sent from socket programs (port 2000) on the virtual XP machines through the lan and sending it to a simulator running on the Linux Machine.

Problem: I need to block the original packets and allow only the duplicates.

I tried to use ip_tables but couldn't really understand it ...(truth is i am afraid to mess up)

any suggestions....

Setup :
Virtual XP (vmware)<====Linux host =====> Virtual XP (vmware)
| |
\ /
NS2 simulator

the simulator NS2 is on linux host

PLEASE any suggestions will be helpful... my thesis depends on it...
Thanks in advance.

I think that rules was meant to say search for answer before posting, but this is the first time you can take it literally.
Second, You posted this three times. Take a look at the rules next time you get a chance. Mods will move your post if it isn't in the right forum. Please don't double or triple post

Third time lucky, eh?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
