[tor-relays] iptables for relays not behind a nat

If you're using Ubuntu server, using UFW to manage your iptables rules
is what I like doing.

sudo ufw enable
sudo ufw allow 9030
sudo ufw allow 9001

Since it's a VPS (presuming remote), be sure to allow SSH:

sudo ufw limit 22/tcp

Check it then reload the config to enable it:

sudo ufw status verbose
sudo ufw reload

And of course any other ports that you use, like I do serve my "This
is an Exit Router" page from the same host, so:

sudo ufw allow 80/tcp
sudo ufw reload
