in general, one can also always add "-l"(log) to the rule that rejects 
all "-p tcp" "-y"(syn) connections and then look in /var/log/messages to 
see exactly what is being rejected.  I like this approach as one can 
start out very strict and then see exactly what is needed.  it's also 
interesting to log all attempts to create a connection.  on some nets 
the incoming HTTP port 80 requests from infected IIS servers is sad.  :)
