The IPChains HowTo does have some useful examples of the syntax required to
achieve what you're describing. I'd recommend it.

Section 3 has some particularly useful (and simple!) examples of typical
configurations. Hopefully, there's something there that can help you get
things configured quickly and easily.


Good luck,
