Okay, I know, I'm a bit paranoiac about system security.
I know that something like "-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i ethX -j ACCEPT" 
in the iptables configuration file will work (normally, I will check). 
However, as I don't know why the iptables service breaks the 
replication just after restarting, whereas iptables seems to be right 
configured, I'm trying to find an explanation.

Nevertheless, thanks for your answer.
