Can you please completely remove the iptables support from your
Linux configuration, as well as removing support for any packet filter
in FreeBSD? Also, please enable fast_forwarding.
If it's there, and you can see it, it's real.
If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it.
