I haven't used "ipp2p" before, but if you delete the INPUT and OUTPUT
rules and keep the FORWARD rule, I think that would do what you want.
Packets to and from the amuled daemon (whether from the Internet,
wireless nodes, or whatever) will pass through the INPUT and OUTPUT
tables and be permitted, but P2P packets between wireless nodes and
the big, bad Internet will pass through the FORWARD table and be
dropped by the remaining rule.
