I would really recommend that you simply read the iptables documentation
before throwing rules around....but anyway, are your NAS's in static address
locations? if so, you could throw something like this into your
/etc/sysconfig/iptables file:

-A INPUT -p udp -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --dport 1812 -i eth0 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --dport 1813 -i eth0 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --dport 1814 -i eth0 -j ACCEPT

..then, at the end, have the catch-all

-A INPUT -i eth0 -j REJECT

assuming that eth0 is your world facing interface...

1812/1813 and 1814 covers control, auth, proxying and accounting.
