This depends on the runlevels in which you have iptables and net.eth0.
Could you please post the output of the following command?

    # rc-update show | grep 'iptables\|net\.'

By having iptables in boot and net.eth0 in default, iptables starts
before net.eth0, but it also stops before services and of course
net.eth0.  Does somebody know a setting to avoid that?

(I would add that one might want to never respond to pings, for
instance, so starting iptables between net.eth0 and services seems not
enough.)

Regards,

Francois
