comment iptables only blocks OpenVPN on server startup
I didnt say it did nothing :) You are assuming that iptables -F flushes all rules, thus leaving you with a "clean slate". It does not.

Its probably because iptables -F doesn't actually flush everything. Check cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-iptables-how-to-flush-all-rules.html

comment How to load sites from your own server as localhost (ssh tunnel trickery)
The host entries go on the client. Then your browser will send an http(s) request with the host header set to the correct domain. The webserver can then serve the correct content. I had assumed you only wanted this for testing purposes. If thats not the case, then an ssh tunnel simply should not be involved.
