This script is located in  >>iptables<< as far as I know!

Call all iptable-commands as you request and call

/etc/init.d/iptables save active

and your firewall will be restored after the next reboot!

You might want to create other tables?
Save them with
/etc/init.d/iptables save [name]

and you can call them with
/etc/init.d/iptables load [name]
within any script afterwards!

No, this script only works with iptables! I think the ipchains-deb includes a script with the same funtionality, but I am not sure!
