its only a 1 liner....
cat /iptables | iptables-restore
so i might aswell just slap it in
when ip booting, (just before the loopback interface is brough up)
i get messages that iptables is being flushed and restored...
so when does this rc.local scrip execute ?
if its before the loopback comes online, its just going to flush iptables anyway.
and since iptables always has some simple rules in it when ive booted, there myst be an existing rule file somwhere ?????
id prefere to directly change that if its possible, any ideas ??
