NAME
       iptables-apply - a safer way to update iptables remotely

SYNOPSIS
       iptables-apply [-hV] [-t timeout] ruleset-file

DESCRIPTION
       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 -t.

       When called as ip6tables-apply, the script will use ip6tables-save/-restore instead.

OPTIONS
       -t seconds, --timeout seconds
	      Sets the timeout after which the script will roll back to the previous ruleset.

       -h, --help
	      Display usage information.

       -V, --version
	      Display version information.
