Why doesn't iptables -L show the interfaces?
I hesitated between the newbie forum - who I am, mostly - and this one... In configuring a basic iptables, I had amongst others:
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
Now, when checking my config with iptables -L, I saw a scary:
ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere
corresponding to the above line.
Googling this up, I saw that iptables -S does show the interface indeed, so my command was correct.
But why wouldn't iptables -L show the interface? The output seems rather useless to newbie-me!
