       iptables-save — dump iptables rules

       ip6tables-save — dump iptables rules


       iptables-save [-M modprobe] [-c] [-t table] [-f filename]

       ip6tables-save [-M modprobe] [-c] [-t table] [-f filename]


       iptables-save  and  ip6tables-save  are  used  to dump the contents of IP or IPv6 Table in
       easily parseable format either to STDOUT or to a specified file.

       -M, --modprobe modprobe_program
              Specify the path to the modprobe program. By default,  iptables-save  will  inspect
              /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe to determine the executable's path.

       -f, --file filename
              Specify  a  filename to log the output to. If not specified, iptables-save will log
              to STDOUT.

       -c, --counters
              include the current values of all packet and byte counters in the output

       -t, --table tablename
              restrict output to only one table. If  the  kernel  is  configured  with  automatic
              module  loading,  an  attempt  will be made to load the appropriate module for that
              table if it is not already there.
              If not specified, output includes all available tables.


       None known as of iptables-1.2.1 release
