iptables is the userspace command line program used to configure the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x IPv4 packet filtering ruleset. It is targeted towards system administrators. Please, when asking a question about iptables, add the output from the following command: iptables -L -v -n

iptables is userspace utility complementary to Linux kernel-level Netfilter firewall.

When seeking help in regards of the firewall configuration it's advisable to supply iptables-save output to give a readable ruleset listing possibly appending it with iptables -L -v -n — to give matching ruleset information.
