They don't reach the external interface?  That is an excellent clue.
But I think it might be a problem trying to have traceroute do it.

I don't know.  I haven't ever tried to use traceroute that way.  If it
is capable of doing that then great.

But I would try netcat instead.  It is a good tool for flinging
packets across the net.  Try something like this:

  joule: echo foo | nc -u dalton 1149

You should see that show up in your tcpdump traces.  If so then you
know the packets are arriving.

Most of my machines are running Lenny.  So I wouldn't know.
