iptables-apply \- a safer way to update iptables remotely
\fBiptables\-apply\fP [\-\fBhV\fP] [\fB-t\fP \fItimeout\fP] \fIruleset\-file\fP
iptables\-apply will try to apply a new ruleset (as output by
iptables\-save/read by iptables\-restore) to iptables, then prompt the
user whether the changes are okay. If the new ruleset cut the existing
connection, the user will not be able to answer affirmatively. In this
case, the script rolls back to the previous ruleset after the timeout
expired. The timeout can be set with \fB\-t\fP.
When called as \fBip6tables\-apply\fP, the script will use
ip6tables\-save/\-restore instead.
\fB\-t\fP \fIseconds\fR, \fB\-\-timeout\fP \fIseconds\fR
Sets the timeout after which the script will roll back to the previous
