I would like to block everything EXCEPT SSH/FTP/HTTP/POSTFIX and MySQL.
With "everything" I mean all the other ports, block pings etc etc.
This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
I'm guessing you mean incoming connections (the INPUT chain), and not forwarded ones (as in a router). Also I take postfix means just SMTP (25).
Test your FTP connection in particular, you may need to enable
