Fellas, I used "Rusty's Really Quick Guide To Packet Filtering"
i.e. /usr/share/doc/iptables/html/packet-filtering-HOWTO.html#toc5 on
a system near you, and I ended up locking myself out of my ISP's news
server. Not other news servers, not ftp, just my ISP's private
server:
$ telnet news.hinet.net 119
Trying 168.95.195.16...
Connected to netnews.hinet.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
help

and then it just hangs. When I remove all the rules there is no
problem. Help.
