Thank you, I'll take a look at them. But, I'd still need some help
concerning the DROP chain -- I've read the Packet-filtering-HOWTO,
and eyed all related HOWTOs from LDP (actually, the Debian package
doc-linux-html), but *still* I'm unable to really grasp the whole
iptables syntax. The rules file I included to my original mail was
put together with a help of a "bit" more experienced friend, so
even that wasn't fully accomplished by me.

So -- I'd really need some help concerning the DROP. Some person
already pointed out, that I don't have any rule, which would DROP
unnecessary packages. The rule file I have, only opens three ports
and REJECTs everything else. But, I got the picture, that I should
also add DROPs there. Even after reading HOWTOs and iptables(8),
I just can't grasp the idea. Any input and help would be greatly

Hehe, I'll look into these and if I'm able to find the solution
to use DROP from your scripts, I will rip 'em. ;-) Thanks a lot,
I think these help a bit, at least. Still, most of the iptables
syntax is total hebrew for me... I guess my IQ isn't very high.
*sad grin*.
