says maybe you need to edit #9. I was thinking that perhaps there
was one other person stuck with a dial-up account that could help me
with this. It isn't a matter of not reading, just a matter of not

For a dial up connection, you might be better off using the SuSE
personal firewall. All you have to do is go into YaST2 and put
ppp0 in the REJECT_ALL_INCOMING_CONNECTIONS box. The firewall2 script
is really designed for more complicated network configurations.

Best Regards,
Keith
