Locked out due to iptables

Posted April 14, 2014 2.1k views
So I read the AWESOME iptables tutorial, where it said right at the beginning to run: iptables -P INPUT DROP What it didn't say is that the rule would be applied directly and lock me out from my SSH. So am I basically fucked or is there a way I can get back into my box?
