I forget the catchy phrase we're using for this. But a subject just
occurred to me: configuring iptables.
I've hacked together something that seems to be working -- I can see
packets with tcpdump that are (correctly) being dropped on the floor.
But I'm on dialup where (I'm guessing here) I get off lightly.
Setting up a laptop for wi-fi is going well. But there are details of
iptables that aren't clear from the docs, or at least not clear to me.
How, exactly does --state RELATED or --state ESTABLISHED work? ftp in
a browser works as expected but from the command line, I have to force
PASV with -p. Is this due to my iptables setup?
Not looking for answers here, but thinking of an NSLUG talk.
A presentation by a wizard with a question period might be in order.
