Very sorry about the dubble Post here!
Ok now It comes to saving my rules, I read that the rules are set to memory and after a reboot they are flushed, and thats what happened.
I googled for saving iptables rules and found This
But it says no such servace, This is for redhat but thought it may be close enough
If anyone knows how to save iptables rules for IPCop 1.3.0 I would love your help!
