Help I am getting frustrated

I would like to switch to Debian, and once this is accomplished I'd like
to help  with the project. However, switching has been much more
difficult than I anticipated. Anyway, right now I am trying to figure
out why I cannot get any packages from the internet. It appears that
there is a firewall running somewhere. I did not intentionally set that
up and I cannot figure out how to turn it off. Here are the messages
that are being logged.

Sep 20 17:10:41 journey kernel: Packet log: input DENY ppp0 PROTO=2 L=28 S=0x00 I=31895 F=0x0000 T=1
Sep 20 17:48:23 journey kernel: Packet log: input DENY eth0 PROTO=17 L=205 S=0x00 I=50609 F=0x0000 T=128

As can be seen, I did succeed in getting ppp to dial in and connect to
my ISP, but that's the end of it. It appears as if everything coming
into the machine gets rejected. WHy? and how do I turn this off.

Any advice is appreciated.
