Can I suggest that you look at using something a bit higher level than a
shell script with iptables commands in it?

Personally, I recommend the 'firehol' script[1] to build your iptables

Not only is it easy enough to learn and use for someone who isn't very
familiar with iptables, the results *are* of excellent quality.

I moved from using hand-written shell scripts to using Firehol, after a
number of years, because it was actually an improvement, unlike most
other "high level" firewall packages.
