Re: Restrict access to a particular server.



You can either set your default policy to drop

iptables -P INPUT DROP

This would drop all packets from all servers by default.  Then the

iptables -A INPUT -s machine_A -p tcp --dport 1521 -j ACCEPT

would accept only packets from machine_A into Oracle.

You may want to add a few more ports, such as 22 for ssh access.

Alternately, you could add

iptables -A INPUT -s machine_A -p tcp --dport 1521 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 1521 -j DROP

Baseically, this says machine A can hit 1521, but anyone else that
tries, just drop the packet.
