RE: IP access restriction



It looks like a bridging firewall is the answer.
Thanks.

Well, maybe not.  IMO, you have several choices:

1. Implement a bridging firewall.  A good description is at
http://linuxgazette.net/issue76/whitmarsh.html
but it appears that in 2.6 you don't need the patch any more.  See
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/archive/4/2004/08/2/214133

2. Make a pseudo-bridge with proxy-arp.  See
http://www.linuxforum.com/linux-advanced-routing/lartc.bridging.html

3. Have the ISP assign an additional /30 and a static route, so
your buddy can have a conventional border router.

4. He may already have a router and not know it :)  In which case
you can just add the firewall rules to it, or replace it with
a fedora box.
