Verizon Cellular service and NetworkManager shared networking

Hi everyone,
I've purchased the Verizon Cellular internet service for home. I love
it, especially when compared to regular dial-up, which is what I'm used to.

I have the USB760 and I got this to work just perfect after I followed
the second post on this forum thread:

One problem that I have is when I share the internet (USB760 = ppp0)
over ethernet (eth0) with NetworkManager.. Verizon will disconnect...
say every 20 minutes or so; sometimes 5 seconds, sometimes 45 minutes,
but mostly around 20 minutes.

The service is disconnected by this: LCP terminated by peer a command

the forums) they've received too many(?) private ip addresses sent to
their public network. (here's the post confirming this: gnome org/msg10840.html )

iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o ppp0 -j ACCEPT

to this:

iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o ppp0 -m state --state
iptables -A FORWARD -j drop-and-log-it

But how do I configure NetworkManager's iptable settings to get this to
work? Is it in the NetworkManager's script files
(none of which I

I don't understand iptables either. I'm a little better at pf.

Any help is appreciated. I posted this to the ubuntu users list, but I didn't receive any responses.
