10 iptables rules to help secure your Linux box

Hi Friends,

Today I read nice article about iptables from techrepublic. I like that Article i am sharing with you guys i hope you also Like it.

The iptables tool is a magnificent means of securing a Linux box. But
it can be rather overwhelming. Even after you gain a solid
understanding of the command structure and know what to lock down and
how to lock it down, iptables can be confusing. But the nice thing
about iptables is that it’s fairly universal in its protection. So
having a few iptables rules to put together into a script can make
this job much easier.
