For example, penny-arcade.com, americanexpress.com SSL logins, and a few others. If you want to poke at this configuration, penny-arcade will appear to begin connection but after the SYN, ACK, then HTTP GET sequence, the HTTP response never gets here (according to Ethereal anyways). If I try connecting from the actual firewalling box itself, it works fine.

my motel room where I'm going to have freaky sex with my prostitute
with whom I still have another 45 minutes."
