with iptable you can look into the tcp-traffic using the mangle-option.
By letting through only established ipconnections, you can filter out
connections like that from scannern or connections that use a not
related protocoll that is allowed on that port.

Block port 80 for some known adresses and mangle the connections on port
80 toward your webserver. Blocking all toward the webserver can cause
that no webpages can be requested from outsite. I think.
