comment Opinions about firewall rules for vps
I see that my question is put on hold. The nature of the question is such that answers to it are solely based on experience and expertise on network configuration and design. This does not make the question invalid or not worthy of accepting any answers. It's hard to have a strict guide of what rules must be put inside a firewall.

comment Opinions about firewall rules for vps
IFF your VPS only has a public IP, and isn't (like AWS, for example) on an RFC1918 network, with NAT doing magic to give the appearance of a public IP How can I know that? Inside the OS, ifconfig shows the public IP. After the rate limit is exceeded, that rule is not hit, so processing proceeds to the later rules in the chain, which then hits Rule 7, permitting the traffic You're right, I didn't think of that. I'll try it out. Thank you for your comments.

comment Upgraded to Debian 6.0.7 and server now does not boot
I also reinstall the previous kernel. The vps provides a rescue system where I can boot, mount the disks and chroot.

I don't understand the negative vote. Anyway, I removed the quiet parameter from grub and it seems that the boot process stucks at the isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards... line.
