Re: [edlug] loading kernel modules

> iptables is running, but everything is set to accept. I have read the HOWTO and man iptables, and I think I should set policies on the INPUT chains to drop, which should mean that packets not explicitly accepted by the chain will be dropped, is that right?

You might want to take a look at Firestarter (http://firestarter.sourceforge.ne
t/), this is a program that will generate a reasonable firewall script which 
you can then modify. I have used it and it seems a good place to start.

Hope this helps,
