Use `iptables -L` to see what the rules really are.  `iptables -vL` with
counts.  `iptables -vnL` for numbers instead of names.

Use `iptables -vL` before and after trying to get an uncached web page.
See which counts went up.

If that doesn't do it, use tcpdump and look for ports that you didn't open.
