Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am using IPtables for a basic firewall, I have placed some blocks on those IP's attempting FTP, SSH conenctions, etc.

I have accept rules at the top for good measure to ensure that my monitoring services, my static IP addresses and DNS are not blocked by a bad rule. Below that I have my deny and log rules.

I have some IP addresses which I see are establishing some random PERL connections via port 80 and I have them in the logs. I have placed blocks on these IP's but they continue to connect to my server, any ideas? I have checked the ruleset and do not see any other allow aside from the allow all rule which is at the bottom.

If your not too IPTables savvy, could I suggest using ConfigServer Firewall. Its free, exceptionally easy to install and straightforward to configure. –  Sonassi Mar 16 '12 at 22:03

From what you have posted, you are only dropping traffic that is either from 81.176.0.0/15 or is in an INVALID state. You do have other drop entries, but they are not reached. Are there other rules that might be relevant? I see no LOG targets, but you're showing me logs.

Please paste your full ruleset.

The source port is 80 for these connections and the flags are ACK SYN, which means that your machine sent SYN to port 80 of those hosts and thus initiated a connection.

Often there's a rule at the top that allows RELATED and ESTABLISHED sessions, and these probaly match that rule. Might this be the case?

Please post your full config, a part of a chain doesn't make any sense.

added them to the above question –  J Murphy Mar 19 '12 at 19:52

It appears you want a reject or drop policy on your chains. The default is accept. As others have noted RELATED and ESTABLISHED connections will be accepted.

From the looks of your rules you are establishing rules piece by piece rather than with policies and rules. Try installing Shorewall firewall. It is packed for many distributions. The documentation is good and there are working example configurations for 1, 2, and 3 interfaces. This covers standalone systems, firewalls, and firewalls with a DMZ.

Yes, piecing it together is the easiest ATM. –  J Murphy Mar 19 '12 at 20:05
    
You may get better results building a defined set of rules. Try logging traffic which you are passing that is now specifically allowed. This is easy to do with Shorewall. –  BillThor Mar 20 '12 at 4:04
    
i'll give it a whirl, thanks. –  J Murphy Mar 20 '12 at 13:25
