Linux Iptables allow LDAPS server incoming client request

Secure LDAP (LDAP over SSL) incoming client request service by default listen on TCP port 636 for queries. Following iptable rules allows incoming client request (open port TCP port 636) for server IP address 202.54.1.20 :
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s 0/0 --sport 1024:65535 -d 202.54.1.20 --dport 636 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -s 202.54.1.20 --sport 636 -d 0/0 --dport 1024:65535 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

Restrict access to LDAPS database server from your network is essential, following iptables allows incoming LDAPS client request from IP address 202.54.1.0/24 network only:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s 202.54.1.0/24 --sport 1024:65535 -d 202.54.1.20 --dport 636 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -s 202.54.1.20 --sport 636 -d 202.54.1.0/24 --dport 1024:65535 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
