Configure Landing Page for ANY TCP traffic on a CentOS server?

February 25, 2012 – 4:00 pm

I have a LAN network running on a CentOS Server. My Segment starts at and ends at .255 – I have around 30 users. However, I only want a few tp get a specific landing page (let’s say a specific index.html on my Apache server) letting them know they are not allowed to browse the internet. Today I have outbound and inbound connections blocked, but I want to let them know. – I know the more elegant solution is something like Squid or another proxy with specific ACLs, however All I need are the iptables commands to forward any traffic from (example) to (server) on port Blah, that will serve up blah webpage, provided a webserver is listening.

An example of this is a hotel that asks for access, or websense, blocking specific users.

  3. Hm, interesting issue…
    If the IP addresses are hard coded (they could be, with MAC address verification I assume), you could have some iptable rule that takes specific Ip addresses and sends them to an Apache server on port 81 (or 8080), instead of port 80. In other words, try to do port address translation (PAT). Valid IP would get to port 80, invalid IP would get remapped to port 81 and sent to another server listening on port 81…

    Just an idea…
