Hi!

I'm not that big guru in security and iptables. When I wrote my firewall, I created a file called "firewall.sh" and wrote there all iptables commands. Then I run the script ./firewall.sh and it writes everything for me. To make changes, I edit the file and run it again, so I don't have to write everything again.

Put this code at the beginning:
Code:
iptables --flush
iptables --table nat --flush
iptables --delete-chain
iptables --table nat --delete-chain
This will delete your previous firewall.

On each run of the script it will delete the old one and build a fresh one.

Hope this helpes!

This is possible, first find the rule numbers for the 2 entries you want to delete. do this with:
Code:
iptables -L
count the line number of the 2 rules, this is there rule number, easy

Now delete them with:
Code:
iptables -D nat 7
where natis the table anme and 7 is the rule number.
