I am setting up a new squid daemon to run on my server. I want to make sure that everyone inside my network can access squid but I want to make sure everyone on the internet is blocked.

eth0 is connected to my internal LAN via: 192.168.0.5/255.255.255.0
eth1 is connected to the internet via: 1.1.1.1/255.255.255.248
Squid listens on port 3124

So far I have the following script for my iptables.

iptables -F
iptables -t nat -F
iptables -X
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3124 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT

Is this correct? Will this allow all my LAN users access to squid while blocking outward attempts from the net to my server?

Thanks in advance!

You might want to include the specific interfaces. For example:
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0-p tcp --dport 3124 -j ACCEPT

-i, --in-interface name
Name of an interface via which a packet was received

-o, --out-interface name
Name of an interface via which a packet is going to be sent
From
Code:
man iptables

ufw MIGHT be easier...
