Paul: try watching the packets passing through this box with tcpdump
or some-such, and assign $HOME_NET base upon the destination IP you

This will stumble over the possibility/probability that your IP is not
static: when your ISP assigns you a new one (DHCP most likely..) then
something will break.

Assuming this helps in the first place :-/
