I have old but reliable Texas Instruments ADSL router.

Board AR7RD; BUILD=061005; VERSION=3.7.1 If that matters...

One thing that bothers me is that it somehow blocking my jabber (Pidgin connected to Google account).

I know that the router is causing it, because I tried several different routers and jabber was working with them. I searched through its settings several times, but couldn't find anything that would indicate the blocking.

I managed to get to it using SSH and I figured it must be in iptables settings. Unfortunately I can't read it well, so I'd be greatful for any help.

Here is the original output from iptables -L

and here is the same after I cleared it up a bit
