       iptables-save and ip6tables-save are used to dump the contents of IP

       specified file.

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

       -f, --file filename
              Specify a filename to log the output to. If not specified,
              iptables-save will log to STDOUT.

       -c, --counters
              include the current values of all packet and byte counters in
              the output

       -t, --table tablename
              restrict output to only one table. If not specified, output
              includes all available tables.
