Re: So... What do I need?

Hello Leandro,

Two things:

1) I assume you're attaching this chain somehow to your interface later, right? If not, you should be using the INPUT chain

2) If you just put 'new' in the state, only the inbound connections will be accepted, but no data will flow back! You have to put NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED instead.

Hope it helps,
Keeping alive, until I die.
