Can't help you much with the iptables but the ! construct in bash is
e.g run the history command and there are few example lines:
492 screen -R
Then running !492 will run the 'screen -R' command again.
So it looks like !192 is being interpreted as inserting line 192 from
the history and then it runs the command. From looking at the iptables
command you may need a space after the !
