But we can see the three type off chains input forward and help After you can see we don't have any restriction for incoming for going connection in this hyper tables table, Where is shameful? The shame is used to control the behavior for incoming correction, for example, you said it into a sage into your PC server. I P Table will attempt to match the I P address and port to a rule in the implosion. I would put shame is use it for our going connection for sample.
