I'm using the defaults for both (i.e. I did what's in the install
$ rc-update show | grep 'iptables\|net\.'
iptables | default
net.eth0 | default
net.lo | boot
I really don't understand what happened on the original poster's

it up, but that would be a bug in the parallel startip code.

Why (outside of s specific attack in that area) would one *not*
respond to pings? Outside from a specific attack in that area
happening, I see no reason to do so.
