Locked out due to iptables

  • Posted April 14, 2014

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?
