Re: IPCHAINS Implementation
also note that in case you just wan't to block web access, then it is better
to set up transparent proxying with squid, and then letting squid do the
filtering. With squid you can set up simple rules for access blocking, with
ipchains, it is really difficult to block anything effectively. ipchains is
better suited for protecting your internal network, and disallowing access
to ppl from the internal network. Lets say you wan't to block all yahoo
sites. With squid, you just set up a rule for destination domain yahoo.com,
and then block it. with ipchains, you will surely go mad (yahoo seems to
have hundreds of ip addresses!!!!) My experience has been real good with
squid. (especially for things like banner ads, which choke up my net
connections, squid works real nice.. just disable doubleclick.net,
imgis.com, flycast.com, ads.*, ad.*, /banner/*, /adserve* and you will see
that all the users are really happy...)
