This is highly presumptuous of me to say, given that I know nothing of
your setup and what you want to achieve with iptables, but instead of slowly
closing ports off, have you considered changing the default policy on all
your tables to DROP and then just opening (-j ACCEPT) individual ports as
you need them?
