iptables revisited

When I first bought my current workstation (currently running Wheezy) several years ago, I got a base station that featured two DVI ports and a VGA port. "Hot Dog" I thought, "I can plug three monitors into the back of this thing, one into the side, and with the laptop screen I can have up to 5 monitors on my workstation!"
