Well. Did you check that with a remote nessusd or with a nessusd installed
on your localhost? If the latter is the case, and you denied access via
ipchains using the --interfaces (ie eth0, ippp0, whatever), but your
connections went over the loopback interface, then the firewall rules
don't apply of course.
Just a tip, nothing more.
