For control, ipchains has some "empty" rules, that lets you allow in
everything, it's sold function being to record the number of packets sent
through that rule, so you could make up a rule for every subnet/machine,
as well as specific ports.
If you were brave, you could then read the output of ipchains -v and see
what it has to say for itself (it would be very easy, it's a nice
human & machine readable output).
