their accounts and nowadays we need to put in all machines. its
a hard work can i do open accoess from the subnet to external ip of
my susefirewall?

thanks a lot

Joni, I suggest you use FWBUILDER ( It is a GUI for making firewalls.

I would not recommend as my understanding is in order to configure a
firewall you need to understand the method behind. As I understand it
the OP has not even tried to understand or looked for documentation on
his requirements. When you are asking him to try fwbuilder, you are
telling him to run when he is just able to walk.

OP have a look at
and download the PDF readit and you will find a description related your
problem along with the recommendation for SuSEfirewall2
