Hi Experts...

One of my networks has a Windows 2003 server thats acts as a DHCP to the local network, and i administer a Linux BOX (Debian) with iptables and Squid. The internet access is restricted based on individual policies acording with the CEO.

My questions:

In Iptables and in Squid is possible to apply rules using only the MAC ADDRESS or the Machine Name ?

Any help will be very apreciate...

Regard´s

Tullio

This is a decent article explaining how to create iptables rules that filter based on MAC addresses:

http://jaredquinn.info/it-related/technical/2006.02.05/iptables-mac-filter/

And here is an example for squid:

(1) To allow http_access for only one machine with MAC Address 00:08:c7:9f:34:41

To use MAC address in ACL rules. Configure with option -enable-arp-acl.

acl all src 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
acl pl800_arp arp 00:08:c7:9f:34:41
http_access allow pl800_arp
http_access deny all

Hope this helps.
