with /etc/init.d/iptables you can save and restore different rulesets.

dpkg-reconfigure iptables in order to have the runlevel symlinks set,
in order to have the firewall set up at boot just before networking is 
set up. 

then, create your port forwarding and filtering rules, and if everything 
fits save it as active ruleset.
