Good to hear this. :)

SmartGW itself does not need any iptables, just the kernel modules for ipip tunnels.

The important configuration parts at the moment are two boolean switches:

"SmartGateway <yes/no>", which can shut down the whole smartgateway subsystem.
"SmartGatewayUplink <none/ipv4/ipv6/both>", which controls which kind of internet gateway (if available as a HNA) is exported with SmartGateway.

The other options are just for transmitting information about the gateway (upload-speed, download-speed, external ipv6 prefix), which could be used by an improved gateway selector.

If there are no special patches involved, this might be a good way to prevent double work.
