I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this statement, but it sounds
like you're saying you can connect to 993 on the local interface *from
that machine*. So, what happens when you do a 'telnet <server> 993' from
off the machine, do you at least get the standard '^]' banner?
I always debug starting from the outside in, not the inside out. This
will rule out firewalls and the like being your problem, which tends to
be the problem a lot of the time. Maybe during reboot some
long-forgotten iptables rules got installed?
