I need to do things quick

in a lab environment I setup my firewall and my services

I then often like to do a iptables -F to check mywork without the firewall.

then I would like to enable the iptables with one quick command

how do I undo a iptables -F without going into system-config-firewall-tui and .......

I need to be quick

Doesn't

/sbin/service iptables reload

do the trick?

Alternatively try

/sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables
