View Full Version : How to filter outgoing traffic for specific process name/id?

Hello. Since iptables doesn't support --cmd-owner any more what's the best way to filter/block the traffic for specific application?
Fedora 8 here.

Have you looked at system-config-firewall?
Fedora has a pretty good built-in Firewall.

I strongly believe that system-config-firewall is just a front-end to iptables.
Okay. Let me be more specific. -m owner options have been dropped from recent iptables versions AFAIK. At least it tells me so in /var/log/messages. And since I never needed anything beyond iptables, I just don't know what's best to use to restore the functionality for outgoing filters. I never used any gui for iptables and wrote all rules manually.
Or are there some other pid/cmd matching options I'm not aware of?

Dear forum admins. Would you please move my question to the Networking section. Maybe I'll have a better chance of getting an answer there :-/

And a tip of the hat to Nokia too. <..;)..>
