    iptable storage


    can anyone tell me where iptables stores data that it displays on screen when we invoke iptable -vL command.

    as we have ip_fwchains file for ipchains.

    Have you checked the iptables man page?

    ya , i have checked iptables man pages.

    in it they give /etc/sysconfig/iptables

    but when i see this files i couldn't see the no of bytes,pkts and source and destination.

    and i also used iptables-save -c but in its output i could not get source and destination address.

    tell me where this file resides?
