Firewalls and Iptables - trying to see a tree in the forest!

Hi there!

What I would like to find out is what this line means (part of "iptables -L" output):
DROP       tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            tcp flags:!SYN,RST,ACK/SYN state NEW
and second of all: how would I be able to reproduce this line (using iptables that is)

The easy way to find this out is to use iptables-dump. It will show it to you in iptables-restore syntax (nearly the same as the command line).
