Linux : Iptables #1 Basic concepts

Recently, I went through lot of iptable stuff (and trouble) to protect my home computer connected via ADSL connection. However I did not find a single document (sure lot of stuff out on www/groups/how-tos et all), which basically illustrate or answer simple questions such as how to block all traffic, flush all iptables rules and so on under Debian GNU/Linux. So I decided sat down and document all the iptables rules in small series along with the scripts.

As per suggestion of Vivek, I am creating/developing a small iptables basis section. Please visit the iptables basis section before reading all of my iptables rules, scripts etc.

    Hai Vivek,

    The link to “iptables basis” is broken. Kindly make it available, which I required.

    Thanks
