If I surmise correctly, this (#11) should be the number of the
rule that's causing the packet to be dropped on the floor.
My first intuition would be to check and make sure that the packets
aren't hitting a DENY rule early in the chain, and getting dropped
before they're checked against the REJECT rule further down.
I would check it out with an `ipchains --line-numbers -L input'  
and see what rule #11 is.
