IPTables are not accessible without root, but I need list of default IPTables policies and chains that come with Firestick 4K to make network adjustments on my campus. I would appreciate if someone would post default Amazon Firestick 4K IPTables policies and chains.

IPTables is a basic firewall used in most Linux distros. Thanks to 0815hoffi, I now know that it is incredibly permissive on Firestick. Basically, all inbound, outbound, and forward LAN/WLAN traffic is allowed/accepted by default. That makes Firestick incredibly insecure on local networks. What sucks even more is that you can't edit IPTables without root access and rooting Firestick 4K is a bit dangerous, but I think I can do it...
