The original reason is that it is an IBM Netfinity with a SCSI RAID 

This is somewhere I would prefer not to go at present as the machine is 
located at almost the other end of the country.

That is why I keep recompiling 2.4.29, the one I originally compiled for this 
machine, rather then upgrading. There is only a small chance that something 
would go wrong but I prefer not to give Murphey a chance....

Please advise if you think there is any not so obvious options needed.

I have read several 'howtos' and official DOC's when setting IP Tables up.
