iptables save commands are not working

I have tried to change my default FORWARD rule to DROP and tried several ways to save it:

iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
iptables-save -c

My /etc/sysconfig/iptables file looks like this:


and this is what it looks like everytime I reboot even though I have entered the save commands.

What distro are you running. If you are using RedHat that should work, but I would use
/etc/init.d/iptables save;
instead. RedHat sometimes moves config files around.
