Possible?I am working on integrating the bridge chain patch (which allows you to doipchains firewalling on bridges) into the new bridge code. I almost gotthings working yesterday, but it gave me a bunch of oopses and thennothing. I wouldn’t consider that ‘usable’ yet…I’ll probably have something usable sometime this week or the next. Myfirst concern right now, however, is to stabilise the current code(without the firewall patch in). I want a piece of code which has provenitself adequate for its intended task, so that I can submit it forinclusion in 2.2.So… for the next week or two, if there’s going to be a firewall-capablebridge, it’s going to be either an unstable branch of the current code, ora patch against the current code.When I get the ipchains firewalling working, you’ll be able to applywhatever ipchains rules you want to the to-be-forwarded bridge traffic.So yes, that would include denying port 80.> Thanks a bunch.Thanks too.Greetings,Lennert
