ALSO ... being quite obvious ... if you have an "all reject" in the
chain, you need to do iptables -L and make sure the new rule is above
the reject all rule ... or the packet will never make it that far.

If you have a script to restart the firewall, add it there instead
(above the reject line).

also, I don't use CAPS for my -p or my -m switches ... no idea if that
matters or not :P

And if all this seems trivial to you, slap me and I will stop with all
the easy/obvious stuff :)
