The following entries are used to flush the iptable rules:

/sbin/iptables --policy INPUT ACCEPT

/sbin/iptables --policy OUTPUT ACCEPT

/sbin/iptables --policy FORWARD ACCEPT

/sbin/iptables -F

Is it possible to place the above in any file(/etc/iptables.rules) so that I can use

iptables-apply -t 60 /etc/iptables.rules

to avoid misconfiguration?.

your /etc/iptables.rules file should look like this :

:INPUT ACCEPT [0:0]
:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0]

COMMIT

Then how about "iptables -F"? –  user53864 Oct 7 '10 at 4:35
    
iptables-apply flushes the rules prior to applying them anyway.... –  Geraint Jones Oct 7 '10 at 4:46
    
Ok!. Is it possible to log iptables other than logging in syslog? –  user53864 Oct 7 '10 at 5:36
