Just a FYi if you were wondering why Linuxrocks has 3 firewalls.

Well the reason for the 3 firewalls is who controls what. One is for the entire network, one is my network, one is on the machine itself. It has no bearing on who can get in as open ports are open ports. However each have their own monitoring rules and if it sees traffic it is not expecting any of them could block the IP or block everything depending on panic level. 9 times out of 10 it is the one I don't control that blocks it.
