Yes I do want to use IPTABLES but I noticed using IPTABLES to deny
services on Virtual Machines which run on Vmware causes the VMs to
disconnect from internet.Not sure what port Vmware needs to be open so
that the VM (Virtual Machine) can be accessed from outside.
I use IPTABLES on host and guest both.
