Latest iptables tweaks on 'box'

Last night I discovered that the reason local IVS transfers weren't working, was that one of my RTVs was trying to use the loopback method to transfer the file. Except that I don't have loopback enabled on my router...and I don't really want to change that.

What had happened apparently was that the box had tried to start the transfer at one time, when WiRNS was down or uncooperative....so it had switched from querying rddns-production.replaytv.net to rddns-production-1.replaytv.net, and since this wasn't being intercepted by my WiRNS setup....it was getting my external IP for the other RTV :|

To get things working last night, I updated my WiRNS configuration to intercept this name as well... and, again the need for loopback has gone away, but I felt the need to look at my iptables setup on box to see why I couldn't get this working.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
