A packet in Iptables is treated in a certain chain sequence, as I have understood. I would like to know what chains apply in what order, and if anyone knows about any good illustrations of this on the net?

I've attached a picture with the default iptables flow to this comment.

For a basic tutorial on iptables see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo
Some sections are Ubuntu specific, but iptables and its parameters is equal for all Linux distributions.

For a very complete and in depth tutorial see: http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.net/iptables-tutorial.html
