When I'm looking at the output of iptables -L
# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy DROP) target prot opt source destination ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp dpt:1194 DROP all -- anywhere ip-x.x.x.nydsl.com DROP all -- anywhere anywhere state INVALID
I've always assumed that the rules execute in order top to bottom. But reading the documentation I haven't been able to verify that. Can anyone confirm?
