python-iptables provides a pythonesque wrapper via Python bindings to iptables
under Linux. Interoperability with iptables is achieved by using the iptables
C libraries (libiptc, libxtables, and the iptables extensions), instead of
calling the iptables binary and parsing its output.
It is meant primarily for dynamic and/or complex routers and firewalls, where
rules are often updated or changed, or Python programs wish to interface with
the Linux iptables framework...
This package provides the Python 2.x module
