       iptables-restore and ip6tables-restore are used to restore IP and  IPv6
       Tables  from  data  specified on STDIN. Use I/O redirection provided by
       your shell to read from a file

       -c, --counters
              restore the values of all packet and byte counters

       -h, --help
              Print a short option summary.

       -n, --noflush
              don't flush the previous contents of the table.  If  not  speci-
              fied,  both commands flush (delete) all previous contents of the
              respective table.

       -t, --test
              Only parse and construct the ruleset, but do not commit it.

       -v, --verbose
              Print additional debug info during ruleset processing.

       -V, --version
              Print the program version number.

       -w, --wait [seconds]
              Wait for the xtables lock.  To prevent multiple instances of the
              program  from  running  concurrently, an attempt will be made to
              obtain an exclusive lock at launch.   By  default,  the  program
              will exit if the lock cannot be obtained.  This option will make
              the program wait (indefinitely or for  optional  seconds)  until
              the exclusive lock can be obtained.

       -W, --wait-interval microseconds
              Interval  to wait per each iteration.  When running latency sen-
              sitive applications, waiting for the xtables lock  for  extended
              durations  may  not  be  acceptable.  This option will make each
              iteration take the amount of time specified. The default  inter-
              val is 1 second. This option only works with -w.

       -M, --modprobe modprobe_program
              Specify  the path to the modprobe program. By default, iptables-
              restore will inspect /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe to determine  the
              executable's path.
