    I can't figure out why this is in iptables:
    DROP all -- localhost/8 anywhere

    and when I try to remove it, I get:

    server:~# iptables -D INPUT -s localhost/8 -j DROP
    iptables: Bad rule (does a matching rule exist in that chain?)

    Server is working ok, as far as I can tell.

    List the chain and then remove it:

    iptables -L INPUT -n --line-numbers
    iptables -D INPUT x
    where x is the number for the rule.
