You can add rules on-the-fly at runtime and then use service iptables save 
to save them. This will be automatically loaded on a service iptables 
start. But it's harder to maintain as a script of your own. I prefer to 
write a script, run it (which includes flushing etc.) and when it's ok I 
save that result.
