ubuntu 7.10 aft upgrade f/7.04 , rdesktop, ssh, refuse connections

After an upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10 ubuntu, both my remote desktop and ssh connections are refused. Any thoughts?

netstat shows the same thing in both 7.04 and 7.10 (I have a clone of 7.04 on a second drive so I can go back to before the upgrade) on 7.04 it all works just fine.

(BTW, is this really using ip version 6, is that what tcp6 means?, I don't know version 6 at all, so I'm confused)

tcp6  0 0 :::5900    :::*  LISTEN
tcp6  0 0 :::22      :::*  LISTEN
Using ethereal, I can see an ICMP packet comming back from ubuntu to the system trying to connect, which is pretty much saying the port number 22 is unreachable. I get the same with rdesktop and port 5900.

Here's a dump, of an attempt to connect via ssh:

Ok, it was the firewall

I had to turn off the firewall to get them to work again.

Firestarter was handy, one button to turn it off.
