hi i have a strang problem
why any host can ssh me in the first list but can't in the second list

please i want to understand this case

Seeing as how the only difference between the two is a single rule, I
would hope it's obvious where you should be looking.

2 ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW tcp dpt:ssh

In the first list, you're explicitly allowing "NEW" connection to the
"ssh" port in. In the second list, you're simply allowing traffic for
any already "ESTABLISHED" connections.

Please tell me this makes sense to you.
