+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.

comment How to make client C and B receive DHCP from client A?
@brent Host A receives the dhcp from my switch hence the others would receive from it aswell which wouldnt workout, thus i have the company server on that board and it could generte conflicts so i would like to maintain the 2nd 2 clients withint the VM using Host A as their server for anything.
