I am fairly new to
iptables. The picture below shows the order in which chains are evaluated based on my current understanding. If that impression is wrong please let me know.
My question is where in the following diagramm is a custom chain placed when I add it like that?
sudo iptables -N MYCHAIN
I know that command creates a new chain in the filter table, but I am not sure what that means. Are rules of
MYCHAIN evaluated before or after rules of the other chains?
