What do you mean by blocking ?

Are you saying that you want to run a particular service at some exclusive port number ? Just like how Telnet runs on 23 and HTTP runs on 80 ..??

Dependinf on you kernel you should use ipfwadm or ipchains.
I think 2.0.x kernels have already the ability to use ipchains. Take a look at the docs they are well documented.
man ipfwadm or man ipchains will give you the answers. If you need a sample, just lett me know. I did setup a firall at our office using ipfwadm on a Linux machine
