       iptables-apply - a safer way to update iptables remotely

       iptables-apply	[-hV]	[-t  timeout]  [-w  savefile]  {[rulesfile]|-c

       iptables-apply will  try	 to  apply  a  new  rulesfile  (as  output  by
       iptables-save,  read by iptables-restore) or run a command to configure
       iptables and then prompt the user whether the changes are okay. If  the
       new  iptables  rules  cut the existing connection, the user will not be
       able to answer affirmatively. In this case, the script  rolls  back  to
       the previous working iptables rules after the timeout expires.

       Successfully  applied  rules  can also be written to savefile and later
       used to roll back to this state. This can be used to implement a	 store
       last  good  configuration mechanism when experimenting with an iptables
       setup  script:  iptables-apply  -w  /etc/network/iptables.up.rules   -c

       When    called	 as    ip6tables-apply,	   the	  script    will   use
       ip6tables-save/-restore and IPv6 default values instead. Default	 value
       for rulesfile is '/etc/network/iptables.up.rules'.

       -t seconds, --timeout seconds
	      Sets  the	 timeout  in  seconds after which the script will roll
	      back to the previous ruleset (default: 10).

       -w savefile, --write savefile
	      Specify the savefile where successfully applied  rules  will  be
	      written	 to    (default	   if	 empty	  string   is	given:

       -c runcmd, --command runcmd
	      Run command runcmd to configure iptables instead of  applying  a
	      rulesfile (default: /etc/network/iptables.up.run).

       -h, --help
	      Display usage information.

       -V, --version
	      Display version information.
