RE: mac address blocking question

Hi Martin,

What I want is to set an ACL where I may specify which mac's will pass. All other won't.

What I forgot to mention is that the host which is connected to eth0 isn't 01:02:03:04:05:06. And it still pings after I issue all that.

Thank you,

PS: Martin, you seem to be having some problems with your reply-to address.
