hey folks, it's been ages since I don't mess with iptables and now I am facing a daunting problem with one particular server not talking to its application peers.

I have this:

> iptables -L INPUT  | head 
Chain INPUT (policy DROP)

does that mean that unless there is a specific rule to accept the packet, the unmatched packet will be dropped?

thank you,


Support the troops, bring them home.
