Good Afternoon people, i am having some question about iptables since my teacher wanted mi to build a web application to help end-usser configure the iptables of a Linux-based OS running on Vmware workstation v6. i was kind of puzzled since i do not know how to start. He was implying mi to build it using php language and apache2 to create it and since php supports remote terminal, is it possible that one can login remotely to configure the iptables on the Linux machine.

Can some kind souls help mi with this

A thousand thanks
