Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just started to configure iptables and I am wondering what basic rules you would recommend that I use for the things that I need.

Here is what I am doing:

I want my default policies for INPUT, FORWARD, and OUTPUT to be DROP
I use SSH and an SSH Tunnel through port 80
I run a server off of port 25565

Please let me know what I can do.
