I've had a similar problem with Firestarter before. How did you remove
it with configs? Did you do a apt-get --purge remove firestarter? IIRC,
Firestarter used to mangle configuration files on installation. Not sure
if it still does that. Have you tried dropping your iptables rules, or
seeing what the result is when doing a port scan with nmap from another
