Linux Iptables block all network traffic

You would like to block all network traffic using iptables firewall under Debian GNU/Linux. This will block all incoming and outgoing traffic including Internet aka ADSL/ppp0 and it is highly recommend. The logic is block everything and allow only required traffic. This can be done with four simple commands:

# iptable -F
# iptables -P INPUT DROP
# iptables -P OUTPUT DROP
# iptables -P FORWARD DROP

Please do not enter above command over remote ssh login session.
