I just setup the firewall2 on 7.3 and it seems working fine if someone
want to access smtp and pop on the outside server.
But I had a problem to doing ftp, our client (mainly using
Windows)cannot do ftp through the firewall. also traceroute and ping to
the internet. Even if I follow the EXAMPLE into my firewall2.rc.config
carefully. Is it by design?
Other question is, is it necessary to setup DNS on firewall because we
currently not maintain DNS, but point to the ISP DNS.
I'm running SuSE8.1 trying to setup a WLAN with a
Cisco-card(firmware;4.25.30). First I set it up via Yast2 with the
I can't get it to work after "dhcpcd eth1" !!??
here is my /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth1
STARTMODE='onboot' also tryed with "hotplug"
I've decided to build out my first Linux based VPN server to service a
half dozen "road warriors" and thier Windows based laptops (Win2K or
XP). However, I'm a bit confused between FreeSwan, PoPToP, openvpn, etc.
Seems like a lot of products that kind of do similar things. Not that
that is a problem, options are good. I just need a bit of help narrowing
things down. Any tips? By the way, I won't be doing the firewalling on
Linux - that purpose will continue to be served by a dedicated firewall

I've heard of this didn't like the idea though. Technically the trend is
towards kernel level ipsec modules. Note 2.5 kernels. I tried pptp then
an experimental 2.5 kernel. But I decided on using freeswan it's stable
robust and relitivly easy to set up. My MS machines have no idea that

Referring to this email for the benefit of the SuSErs:
First, I didn't mis-quote you, or edit what you said. With the exception of a
fullstop (period) at the end of the first section, my quote is character for
character what you typed.
Second, all quotes, by their nature, are out of context. That is only normally
a problem if what was intended by the original statement is altered by the
quoting. In this case, I don't think it is.
The second part of my quote is repeating a simple fact in the exact words you
used to state it. The fact could be stated in any context. I can't see how
context could change it.
As for the first part, had you said:
"Reading today's Slashdot comments, you can see that *it is perceived that*
our desktop is falling behind stability-wise and feature wise to KDE"
and I'd slyly taken out the "it is perceived that" bit, you'd have a point.
But you didn't say that. You stated what some Slashdot readers can see to be
reality, and what I can see to be reality: stability wise and feature wise,
GNOME is falling behind KDE. From what you wrote, it seems you can see the
reality of that too. If you're now telling me that that's not what you meant
to say, hard luck. You said it, it's on the record, and my partial quoting of
it doesn't change the meaning of what you said.
I'm not going to quote your entire email in my sig for obvious reasons,
although I have referred the 3 or 4 people who asked about it to the original
mailing list post. And since I'm not attributing to you an edited version,
nor anything which you didn't actually say, I'll continue to use the quote as

I was just on the German site and noticed that they have a link to "book
in advance" (lycos translation) SuSE 8.2.
Does anyone know when this will be available on the English site?
It's not extremely important, just curious.
I just upgraded k_delft on my 8.0 and before doing so rpm -e i2c-2.7.0-1
and lm_sensors-2.7.0-1. Now when I boot the machine goes to start then
goes only to command line, no kde. If I try to start wvdial it does a
segfault, so I am back on a windoze machine. Can someone suggest what I
might do to correct this problem, other than a reinstall.
I am using a U.S. Robotics 56K Performance Pro V.92 PCI modem which is
fully supported. My ISP supports V.92. I am using Kinternet to
connect. Yet, when downloading files from http or ftp, my datarate is
averaging 3Kb/s( yes it spikes to 10Kb/s and drops to 0Kb/s, but still
averages 3Kb/s). I am locked on that one file that is downloading, and
until it is fully downloaded I can't use my connection for anything else
(even trading a slower datarate for further access or multiple downloads).
