If you know basic firewall rules and have basic understanding how firewall works, you can easily setup IPTables.

use vuurmuur to configure IPTables, its GUI or more like TUI for IPTables.

seeing is believing.

I understand the logic just not the code D: I would honestly rather script it than use a GUI, GUIs are for when I can use the command line and have the right to be lazy :P

GUI will make thing easier, you don't have to remember the context of the code for each command.

The ! is how you invert something, this is standard across most anything not jut iptables. if you want your rule to be if the IP is not 192.168.0.1 then it would be be ! 192.168.0.1. if you want to say everything but a specific interface then something like !eth1

Have you looked at the man even?

http://linux.die.net/man/8/iptables

Here is good ref

hint.. maybe if you google for that there would be links to find it pdf.. just saying that might happen if you google..

I went crazy googling :P I do google before I ask here I just dont know what to search half the time...

 

this is what I used in the end

 

A PREROUTING -i eth0 -d ! 192.168.0.1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 3128
