That allows still a lot (all other IP protocols). Ports make no
sense for ICMP. To drop anything you could use:

/sbin/ipchains -A input -i ppp0 -l -j DENY

But at least for ident/auth I would suggest to use REJECT to
avoid long timeouts. You shouldn't block all IMCP types (at least
some type 3 - dest unreach - should be allowed, at least if not

If you're really paranoid you could use:
/sbin/ipchains -A input $ALLOWED_OPTIONS -i ppp0 -l -j ACCEPT
to log allowed packets too, but you will get a lot of logs.

use rindetd or:
from man ipasqadm:

ipchains -I input -p tcp -y -d 80 -m 1
ipmasqadm mfw -I -m 1 -r hostA 80
