Hello all. I'm new to the list. I have a quick question: does the order
in which rules are added for an iptables table matter?

Kenny -

The order is definately important. The first rule that matches the packet
is the one that takes effect. IPTables rules can be inserted between other
rules by number.
The exact syntax is in the man pages. Good luck!
