NAME
       iptables-restore — Restore IP Tables

       ip6tables-restore — Restore IPv6 Tables

SYNOPSIS
       iptables-restore [-chntvV] [-w secs] [-W usecs] [-M modprobe] [-T name]
       [file]

       ip6tables-restore [-chntvV] [-w secs] [-W usecs] [-M modprobe] [-T
       name] [file]

DESCRIPTION
       iptables-restore and ip6tables-restore are used to restore IP and IPv6
       Tables from data specified on STDIN or in file. Use I/O redirection
       provided by your shell to read from a file or specify file as an
       argument.

       -c, --counters
              restore the values of all packet and byte counters

       -h, --help
              Print a short option summary.

       -n, --noflush
              don't flush the previous contents of the table. If not
              specified, both commands flush (delete) all previous contents of
              the respective table.

       -t, --test
              Only parse and construct the ruleset, but do not commit it.

       -v, --verbose
              Print additional debug info during ruleset processing.

       -V, --version
              Print the program version number.

       -w, --wait [seconds]
              Wait for the xtables lock.  To prevent multiple instances of the
              program from running concurrently, an attempt will be made to
              obtain an exclusive lock at launch.  By default, the program
              will exit if the lock cannot be obtained.  This option will make
              the program wait (indefinitely or for optional seconds) until
              the exclusive lock can be obtained.

       -W, --wait-interval microseconds
              Interval to wait per each iteration.  When running latency
              sensitive applications, waiting for the xtables lock for
              extended durations may not be acceptable. This option will make
              each iteration take the amount of time specified. The default
              interval is 1 second. This option only works with -w.

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

       -T, --table name
              Restore only the named table even if the input stream contains
              other ones.
