Try setting type=checksum in your copy, or control: DefaultCopyType = (checksum)

It defaults to 'ctime' so if your client was installed after the server's
'iptables' file was created, it won't get copied. And the server has no
way of knowing whether the client's file is newer, so this check is done
on the client... after the server sends the file. So it would describe
the behavior you're seeing.

(If iptables doesn't exist at all on the client, and it *still* won't
copy, this won't help you)
