Chapter 11: Firewall Troubleshooting

Figure 11-1: A single-homed stand-alone server can use an iptables-based firewall config or TCP wrappers to control incoming service requests, but not all services can be controlled with TCP wrappers by default.
Figure 11-2: Dual-homed or network firewalls are designed to protect entire networks of machines, not services running on the same server. These firewalls should only be using iptables.
Figure 11-3: Incoming client requests pass through levels of security on a system. iptables is the most secure outer level of defense or access control.
Figure 11-4: Red Hat Linux offers a graphical tool to configure iptables.
Figure 11-5: The most commonly used iptables for simple firewalls, called "filter." iptables is composed of multiple sets of tables of chains, and these chains have ordered sets of rules.
