I would like to setup my new server (located on my LAN) to ALLOW ALL incoming and outgoing traffic from any other computer on my LAN, but DENY any connections from systems outside of the LAN. My question is how do I setup iptables to do this ?
Also,I would like to know if this would impact my ability to download files from the Internet on that server ? Would I still be able to download security updates for the server if I set things up this way ? As you may have guessed I am pretty new to all of this so please excuse my ignorance in advance.
