Hi all,

 Due to some needs, I have installed a Windows 10 Enterprise system in
a HP Microserver.

 I have added hyper-V role to this host and I have setup a Kali 2.x
VM. Now, my next setp is to install suricata as an IPS inside this VM
and inspecting all traffic generated by Windows 10.


Internet ------> Kali 2.x/Suricata IPS --------> Windows 10

Ok, my doubts comes with iptables. I know how to redirect all traffic
to Suricata but I need "harden" this kali vm to act as a firewall and

 Normally, I use BSD systems to accomplish this, and it is pretty easy
with PF, but with iptables I don't see pretty clear.

 Searching web, I see a lot of tutorials about iptables, but only
using simple scenarios.

 Someone knows any good tutorial to accomplish this ??.

 My idea is to control ALL traffic that comes/go to this Windows 10
host among using Suricata ....
