Glad that worked for you, but I personally hate that firewall recipe page with a passion.
It's fine for someone who really understands iptables to use a complicated rig like that, but many beginners find that page, copy and paste it without understanding the ramifications of the rules in there, and then many of them get tangled up in the complicated web of rules if they ever want to change something.
I mean, right off the top of my head - the list of bogons is way outdated - for instance this one:
add address=0.0.0.0/7 list=illegal-addr
220.127.116.11/8 is active on the Internet these days. You may or may not need to talk to anything in that range, but if you did and it didn't work, would you have thought to look up the IP of the site in question, and then go look through the illegal-addr list to discover that 1.x.x.x was covered by 0.0.0.0/7 ?
If so, then keep using this list, but many people get screwed by this monstrosity of a firewall recipe.
