I have few iptables rules which I want to use permanently. So I've installed iptables-persistent and save my rules in /etc/iptables/rules.v4 and /etc/iptables/rules.v6.

Also I turn on autostart for iptables-persistent service

$ sudo update-rc.d iptables-persistent defaults
$ sudo update-rc.d iptables-persistent enable 2345

But after system starts iptables rules are still empty

$ sudo iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

And when I start iptables-persistent manually, it goes well

$ sudo service iptables-persistent start
 * Loading iptables rules...
 * IPv4...
 * IPv6...

$ sudo iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source                destination         
DROP       all  --  domain.ru             anywhere            
DROP       all  --  srv246-131.domain.ru  anywhere
etc ...

What am I missing?
