ipset - Manage Linux IP sets
IP sets are a framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel, which can be administered by the ipset utility. Depending on the type, currently an IP set may store IP addresses, (TCP/UDP) port numbers or IP addresses with MAC addresses in a way, which ensures lightning speed when matching an entry against a set.
If you want to:
- store multiple IP addresses or port numbers and match against the collection
by iptables at one swoop;
- dynamically update iptables rules against IP addresses or ports without
- express complex IP address and ports based rulesets with one single iptables
rule and benefit from the speed of IP sets
then ipset may be the proper tool for you.
Install the ipset rpm package:
# yum install ipset
