How can I tell if these iptables rules already exist?

Code:
iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
If I grep for it, it doesn't show anything:
Code:
# iptables -L |grep INPUT\ ACCEPT
# 
# iptables -L |wc -l
253
TIA

dont grep, just run iptables -L or if you wish to monitor and dig through the output redirect it to a file then vi the file...

Code:
iptables -L >> IPTABLES
vi IPTABLES
then you can line throug or use the search function built into vi. to search with vi just hit the / key then without a space type your search...

Code:
/INPUT
to advance to the next line with that search string just hit the 'n' key.
