Similar to this old request on BugZilla for Fedora 8, I'm hoping something has changed since then or someone knows another way.
I want to manage the iptables rules by hand—the one-size-fits-all automatic rules don't suit me at all. These rules seem to be added and removed when a network is started and destroyed. Is there a way of either preventing these rules being added at all or hooking a script into the network start that restores the default rules afterwards.
For now, I'm using a very crude method with
cron, but I hope there is a better way:
* * * * * root iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables
