NAME
       iptables-save — dump iptables rules

       ip6tables-save — dump iptables rules

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

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.
