:'''Perform the following steps:'''
# Make certain you are in your '''c7host''' machine.
# Issue the following Linux command: <b><code><span style="pointer-events: none;cursor: default;color:#3366CC;font-size:1.2em;">iptables -P INPUT DROP</span></code></b>
# Issue the '''iptables -L''' command verify . Can you see the INPUT policy has been to DROP all incoming connections?# Although you have set (look for a default policy to DROP all incoming connections, there is a problem: now, you cannot browse the Policy section, NOT INPUT)Internet. You can confirm that by opening a SEPARATE web-browser and perform a Net-search.<br><br>After the overall default policy is setIn order to fix that problem, then you can create policy rules that are "exceptions" make an exception to the default policy rulesallow incoming web-based traffic (via port 80). These Those iptables commands to create exceptions are more complex since you need to determine: <ul><li>'''Where each rules appears in the chain'''? (order can be important)</li><li>'''Which protocol(s)''' are affected (eg. tcp, udp, icmp)</li><li>'''What source or destination IP Addresses''' are affected?</li><li>'''What port numbers''' are affected?</li><li>'''What action to take''' if all of the above conditions are met?

# Shutdown all VMs and restart your c7host Linux machine.
# List the iptables rules for the INPUT chain. What happened to your iptables rules for the INPUT chain?
