comment Allow users to run only specific binaries with root permissions/privileges
Am I missing something? Why can't you just edit /etc/sudoers and add username ALL=/sbin/iptables /sbin/whatever?

comment How to transfer Windows application to Ubuntu on Virtualbox?
@GTyler: even if you had it the Windows licence does not allow you to use Matlab on Linux. A possible alternative is to use SciLab, which is free and opensource and which can execute Matlab scripts (depending on the script).
