In newer distributions you normally have a frontend to configure and manage the firewall. The most popular these days are ufw and firewalld and maybe shorewall.Those frontends also take care to add the rules in iptables and the iptables script can be skipped or better to say should be skipped, as the frontends will not pick up your changes you have done with iptables command directly. The next time the system boots, the iptables init script reapplies the rules saved in /etc/sysconfig/iptables by using the /sbin/iptables-restore command. While it is always a good idea to test a new iptables rule before committing it to the /etc/sysconfig/iptables file, it is possible to copy iptables rules into this file from another system's Jul 21, 2020 · iptables is used to set up, maintain, and inspect the tables of IP packet filter rules in the Linux kernel.

Which clears all rules as the first step. But probably not best practices if connected to the internet on a high speed connection. # iptables -t nat -F # iptables -t nat -X # iptables -F The simplest way to ensure that all changes are loaded is to restart the iptables service.
