OK, I tried all that and it works (and doesn't work) like before. My
server still gets to the net, other boxes don't.

I'm using the standard suse firewall setup, with eth0 as internal and
ppp0 as external. I'm using the same rules as with dialup (really no
changes at all there).

I did change the default gateway and it may be correct now, but doesn't
make the difference.
