I think that's a sensible question. I think that the usual lokkit
arrangement has the user-defined chain as you show
(RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT). But what your output does not show is that is
also gives this user-defined chain as the target for the INPUT and
FORWARD chains. I don't know why that's not the case on your machine.
As shown, your RH-Lokkit... chain never has any effect I think, like
dead code. Look for a little /usr/sbin/lokkit utility that gives you
some control over lokkit. Anyway, making your own script of iptables
commands is probably more flexible and precise. I like this one
