CentOS 7 Iptables Help

Post by sbuchanan0613 » 2018/09/25 17:15:22

Good Morning,

I am running the latest CentOS 7 release with an external and internal NIC and have an idea in my head for routing traffic. Within Iptables I can specify --owner --gid-owner <gid> to match specific inbound traffic. What I want to do is match this "gid" traffic and DNAT this (ssh) traffic to a machine that is sitting behind this CentOS firewall/router. However my gotchya is if the gid doesnt match, I want to route this other traffic to port 22 on the localhost. In my setup, I cant just setup a NAT rule with an obsolete port. Basically from the outside, typical ports can be open where as non-typical cannot. If anyone has any ideas of how to accomplish this please let me know.

Best Regards,

I'm pretty sure that uid matching in iptables only works for outbound packets not for inbound.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
