http://serverfault.com – I'm quite new to Linux and using iptables. Here is what I am trying to accomplish: I have an ASP.net client that talks with a web service hosted through web-logic on linux. The communication is over SSL. What I am trying accomplish using iptables is only block the response back to the client. So the client makes a web service call, the web service processes the request and replies back to the client. I want the web service to receive the request but block its response back to the client. What I did for test purposes was flush all the rules from iptables. I created default policies for ACCE (HowTos)
