comment Linux : restricting outgoing on an application basis
That is once I had ssh'ed into the restricted account I typed : "sudo iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -m owner --uid-owner 1234 -j DROP" where 1234 was the uid number of the restricted account

comment Linux : restricting outgoing on an application basis
Hi thanks, I discovered a similar solution last night, inspired by the following article : unix.stackexchange.com/questions/21650/… So basically I logged in as a different user, started firefox, and then ssh'ed into a separate account which had user restrictions as specified in the article, and used (under this restricted user profile) all the applications which I did not want to have internet access.

comment Rsync : copying over timestamps only
Thanks. I think I will probably stick with Rsync for the moment, but I will definitely go out to the web and learn the different components of your script, as it may be useful in the future.
