RE: IP access restriction

It looks like a bridging firewall is the answer.

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

1. Implement a bridging firewall.  A good description is at
but it appears that in 2.6 you don't need the patch any more.  See

2. Make a pseudo-bridge with proxy-arp.  See

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.
