As the tags show, its a snippet of a larger script with more rules for
allowing other services thru the box. I have set things up this way:

# ls -l /etc/init.d/fire.sh
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         1321 Aug 10 19:51 /etc/init.d/fire.sh

/etc/init.d/fire.sh calls the following scripts according to $1 it is
passed. ("start" or "stop"...)

# ls -l /etc/ppp/firewall*.sh
-rwxr-xr--    1 root     root          278 Aug  9 21:50 /etc/ppp/firewall_off.sh
-rwxr-xr--    1 root     root         5224 Aug 15 21:25 /etc/ppp/firewall_on.sh

The snippet I posted was from firewall_on.sh.

I ran update-rc.d for creating appropriate SysV links.

# zless /etc/init.d/README /usr/doc/sysvinit/README.runlevels.gz
for more infos.

I can't be wrong, my modem's got error-correction.
