No problem.

Yes I change the port, I've not done the obvious thing and used the
wrong port. :) I've also tried using "in via gre0", that part is working
perfectly. I can see the packets getting forwarded by the rule logging
into /var/log/security, but I never see the forwarded packets on the
loopback interface

I have forwarding turned on via sysctl. Is there something I'm missing?
