Re: 2.6.11, pppoe, iptables

I also encountered the same problem as Cedric:  iptables drops 
all TCP traffic, either with firestarter or when started manually. 
My setup (ibook 2.2, PPPoE, kernel 2.6.10, hoary) is also very 
similar to his.

As Cedric's post is the only one that my frantic googling turned 
up, and our setups are almost identical, I suspect the problem
could very well be debian-powerpc specific.
