4. If any iptables other than the above appear, please utilize the "iptables -F" command to delete all rules in all chains, then utilize the "iptables -S" command to confirm the output is as displayed below.

5. Attempt booting clients again.


Only proceed past step 5 if it is discovered that the iptables rules revert on reboot and the issue recurs.

6. Install the iptables-persistent package to keep the iptables settings on reboot.

7. Optionally, save current IPv4 rules when prompted.

 7. Once the package is installed, restore iptables to its stock configuration as above, then issue the following command to permanently save settings:

iptables-save > /etc/iptables/rules.v4

8. Attempt booting clients again.
