iptables-apply - a safer way to update iptables remotely
iptables-apply [-hV] [-t timeout] ruleset-file
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.
-t seconds, --timeout seconds
Sets the timeout after which the script will roll back to the previous ruleset.
