I'm quite new to Linux and using
iptables. Here is what I am trying to accomplish:
I have an ASP.net client that talks with a web service hosted through web-logic on linux. The communication is over SSL.
What I am trying accomplish using
iptablesis only block the response back to the client.
So the client makes a web service call, the web service processes the request and replies back to the client.
I want the web service to receive the request but block its response back to the client.
What I did for test purposes was flush all the rules from
iptables. I created default policies for
ACCEPT on the
FORWARD chains. Next I added a rule to the
OUTPUT chain to
DROP anything which has the source IP of the client.
iptables -A OUTPUT -s client_ip_address -j DROP
Apparently, this made no difference. I can call the web service from the client and still receive a response.
Any help is appreciated?
