Hey scty Library,

I forget your name.

I do not have an answer for your question exactly. 
However, I think I have a solution to the overall
problem, and it is here:

http://www.lowth.com/LinWiz/1.09/

I use the wizards to create my iptables files.  I have
a couple of basic files that I use, and then I tweek
the appropriate one after copying it to a new install.
 

For people who want a solution fast, the two wizards
are great.  

I hope this helps.

Rick
