Is the service iptables set to eun every time?
Right now I am on an Ubuntu box so cannot trace the command but man
for something like "chkconfig". The command is something like
"chkconfig --level 35 iptables"
Alternatively run "setup" as root and in services enable the iptables
as service. This will make it run at boot time.
