Hi,
We configure a slack with a transparent bridge, but IPTABLES dont block traffic passing throught the bridge.

Are there any known problem to use iptables in a transparente bridge?  Any solution for this problem?

Please, it's urgent.


Regards,
Luiz

iptables can't "see" bridge packets.

See ebtables for this :

The Ebtables syntax is similar or equal iptables?

Yes. Very similar.

But you have to install it and recompile a kernel with it. It's standard in 2.6, but you need to patch your 2.4 kernel.

Then, install the user space tools.

Their site is pretty informative and very helpful in setting this up.

There is unfortunately no easier way.

Can you help a little more?

I install ebtables and it works fine... but I have difficult to make some rules, because is a little different from IPtables.

For exemple, I don't know how to block ICMP attemp and dun know how to block a port 25 for exemple.... the website does not have a complete exemples.

Take a look:

Thanks for any help

ebtables -A FORWARD --ip-proto 1 -j DROP # 1 is ICMP
ebtables -A INPUT --ip-proto 1 -j DROP

ebtables -A FORWARD --ip-proto IPv4 --ip-destination-port 25 -j DROP
ebtables -A INPUT --ip-proto IPv4 --ip-destination-port 25 -j DROP

I don't have an ebtables installed box in here, so it's hard to test, but these should work.
