Hello,
      I wish to understand the following 
in the iptables file.

I see the following the entries :

# Generated by iptables-save v1.2.9 on Tue Apr 26 14:50:01 2005
*nat
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0]
:PREROUTING ACCEPT [0:0]
:POSTROUTING ACCEPT [0:0]

# Completed on Tue Apr 26 14:50:01 2005
# Generated by iptables-save v1.2.9 on Tue Apr 26 14:50:01 2005
*mangle
:PREROUTING ACCEPT [707:100355]
:INPUT ACCEPT [704:99811]
:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [541:74129]
:POSTROUTING ACCEPT [611:85191]

# Completed on Tue Apr 26 14:50:01 2005
# Generated by iptables-save v1.2.9 on Tue Apr 26 14:50:01 2005
*filter
:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]
:INPUT DROP [0:0]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0]


What do you entries like " OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0] "
signify or represent.

Thanks

Varun
