RE: iptables

That fixed it. I had to reinstall iptables and use the init.d option.

Thanks to all.

I believe that the iptables script in /etc/init.d will restore the
saved iptables ruleset.  Once you get the rules setup the way you want
it, run (as root) iptables-save.  This will save the ruleset and then
be restored upon reboot by the /etc/init.d/iptables script.  But, I
don't know this for sure since I've built my own script.
