This small tutorial will help you set up iptables to survive a reboot. First you need to define the rules you want, then continue with this tutorial.
After the rules are defined and tested, execute the following command to save the rules to
iptables-save > /etc/iptables.conf
Now edit the
/etc/network/interfaces file, and add the following right after the line which looks like
iface eth0 inet static (eth0 and static might be different.):
pre-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.conf
Now save the file, and after a reboot the IPtables rules will be in place.
