If you *only* have port 80 open in your firewall then you only
need the HTTP rules. Or any rule that uses the port 80. That's the best 
option, I think.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
                -- Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
