#2424 accepted defect

Android purges firewall rules after network disable/airplane mode.

Setting my phone to disable data access and/or enable airplane mode seems to cause the transproxy iptables rules created by OrBot to get silently flushed. After re-enabling, all apps access everything without tor, until I go into the orbot config screen to cause it to reapply them.

OrBot should listen for these network disable/loss/disconnect events if possible, and reinstate the iptables rules after this happens.

Someone should also test if switching from cell data to+from wifi also triggers this iptables reset. I have not tested that yet.

Switching from wifi to 3G does not cauase the iptables rules to be wiped.

We will test further whether Airplane mode continues to do this, and will look into resetting the transparenty proxy rules when we detect the network state changing.
