    Iptables Firewall Script / Tutorial

    I wrote a simple little firewall tutorial/script that builds the firewall set as it teaches you about how to write rules. I know it's simple, but it's my first attempt at a tutorial. My own ruleset is much more complex and wouldn't make for good teaching material. Let me know if you have any suggestions or comments. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure. I started is yesterday on my train ride to work, worked on it some more on my way home, then finished it today, so I'm pretty sure it's mine.

    What do you mean you don\'t have a backup disk?

    I forgot to mention that after you run the script, you can make it permanent by running the command "service iptables save". This will store your ruleset in a system file and reload the ruleset every time the computer restarts.

    Edit: Of course, this only applies in systems with the service command. I know RedHat uses it, and I think Mandrake might. If anyone knows of any other distros that use it, chime in.
