We have a server on Suse Linux 8.2 set up to share the internet acces to the whole acces. I want to filter some users out by only allowing specific users to acces the internet (using the mac of the network card) but i couldn't do it, could anybody help me? Maybe even point me to a how-to/tutorial?

If using ipchains/iptables:

iptables -N MACcheck
iptables -A MACcheck -m mac --mac-source aa.bb.cc.dd.ee.ff -j ACCEPT
iptables -A MACcheck -m mac --mac-source uu.vv.ww.xx.yy.zz -j ACCEPT
iptables -A MACcheck -j DROP

Couple of good articles..
