a good ipchains tutorial for begginers
Hi i have been searching google for about an hour now and am struggling to find a tutorial about ipchains for complete newbies
i have looked at many, and they seem to rely on that fact that you know the basics of ipchains
so if you know any could you please give me a link, or if you have learned them from a book, then i would also like to know which one
Your first port of call should be the Linux Manuals.
At your console, type "man ipchains". This will bring up a list of options for ipchains, etc.
http://www.linuxdocs.org is a fantastic reference site and contains documentation on most things you might want to do with your Linux system.
I suggest you check out the IPChains howto at http://www.linuxdocs.org/HOWTOs/IPCHAINS-HOWTO.html which starts at an introduction (basics) and goes right through to real life examples.
I must point out that IPChains is becoming obsolete. Most installations are starting to head more towards iptables. Most current Linux distributions include both, but there is a good chance that IPchains will be dropped in upcoming releases.
