Everytime my server reboots it seems I have to reset my iptables to default, I used to use firestarter but removed it a while ago. Is there any settings that are making iptables change when the server reboots?

This is the default behavior.

You may want to take a look at the package iptables-persistent to automatically set iptables rules at startup from a configuration file.
