Actually, there may be an easy way, at least on Fedora Linux most or all Cores and maybe in all Linux distros using Bastille.
In /etc/Bastille you should have or can create a directory named firewall.d. In that directory, you can add a file that is run on server reboot, thus restoring your "special" rules such as blocking a Nigerian ISP that has some nasty fellows who are constantly probing your server....
INSERT the iptables COMMANDS you need, for example
iptables -I INPUT -m iprange --src-range 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206 -j DROP
iptables -I OUTPUT -m iprange --dst-range 220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168 -j DROP
Save the file, then when iptables starts at boot it loads these rules.
I have found this to be an effective way to permanently deal with a lot of the server brute-force-attacks originating again and again in some countries, and to forever block someone who used cracked SMTP logins to spam.
Any iptables rules in the file are run, but be sure that the rules are valid and tested from the command line so that you don't break iptables on boot.
