I use the /etc/init.d/iptables script to start, stop, save, etc my firewalling
directives. Once my rules seems OK, I run '/etc/init.d/iptables save active',
and each time my system boots up (Once a year...), it load the correct file.
There is 'active' and 'inactive' ruleset, and 2 other states (I can't remember
exactly the names) of firewalling ruleset.
My 2 cents.
THE OLD POOL SHOOTER had won many a game in his life. But now it was time
to hang up the cue. When he did, all the other cues came crashing go the floor.
