comment IPTables and DHCP questions?
@Steven the server that has the firewall which is the one mentioned above has eth0 and eth1, eth0 receives dhcp as a client from the outside and eth1 is my dhcp server for my internal network which is the one i am talking about. What do u mean by Are you monitoring the network interface in promiscuous mode i am still learning...

something just crossed my mind, you can use ptables -A INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED without pointing it to ACCEPT would that be the same as declaring it on all rules in place on the rules list ?

+1 Thanks for the links while i am not planning on using any softwares (i will take a look at the docs from shoreall) on top of my iptables most because i want to learn on it and not on tools that goes on top of it.

about your answer on 2 that is what i was thinking about it. So having an open state rule like that wether on the INPUT OR OUTPUT indeed does allow any requests to any services i have available and would be more suitable if i do it those per rule ?

Just to tell a little more about the Q2 from the test i did, having only $IPT -A OUTPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT i don't even need $IPT -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 2013 -j ACCEPT as it already seem to understand that it is an stablished OUTPUT from an known INPUT

You didn't mention anything about the nat table thanks for point that out but i am doing the questions as i face them so i am yet to get to the nat part currently i am learning OUTPUT INPUT FORWARD then i will move to nat and mangle. i've made a VM just to learn those so dont worry we will get there :) about Q2 i do have one for INPUT without the NEW ofc but i was just wondering about the output one since that is more related to inner stuff i mean if you can't stablish a IN connection there will be no OUT connection ssh as for example.
