I am using ipset in conjunction with iptables to create a list of IPs I want to block. I did this:
ipset -N blocking iphash ipset -A blocking 126.96.36.199 // and repeated this line for all IPs I want to add to "blocking" list
now I have to add this rule to iptables
if I do this
iptables -A INPUT -m set --set blocking src -j DROP
the IPs will be blocked for everything SSH, FTP, etc. I want just to block them from using my email system dovecot, exim.
how do I do that?
