Cloack an IP range from some IPs via iptables

iptables -A FORWARD -i br0 -m iprange --src-range 192.168.0.x-192.168.0.y -m iprange --dst-range 192.168.0.w-192.168.0.z -j DROP
Destination IPs will become invisible to source IPs!

  • This turns your iptables packet filter to a "Allow any from any to any" filter, so you can rule out any filtering issues when you have a problem to enable a connection from or to your host. To re-enable it, run /etc/init.d/iptables restart

  • If you changed the default policy on any chain other than filter table chain's, this won't be enough.

  • These series of commands allows you all at once to make a backup of your current config, edit that config, then saves it as the running config and makes it persistent. I would advise knowing what your doing to the config before running this because if you mess up say the port 22 portion, you may get knocked off the system. ;) Don't say I didn't warn ya!
