Legacy tools for managing Linux kernel packet filtering capabilities
The iptables utility controls the network packet filtering code in the Linux kernel. This package contains the legacy tools which are obsoleted by nft-variants in iptables-nft package for backwards compatibility reasons. If you need to set up firewalls and/or IP masquerading, you should not install this package but either nftables or iptables-nft instead.
