iptables v1.3.6: Unknown arg `--state'
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.

Hmm, no that didn't do the trick. iptables -m tcp or -m udp seems to
work fine though, but not the state module.

FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.24-2-pve/modules.dep: No such
file or directory
iptables v1.3.6: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not
exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
