I think fw_allow_ping_fw means, that you can ping the firewall. The same I
think is only meant for the firewall. I think you have to masq your pings,
if you want to ping through your firewall to the internet.

Thema: [suse-security] Suse firewall script question


I´m trying to set up a linux firewall box with 3 network devices. The
first points to the internet gateway, the second to the DMZ(192.168.1.x)
and the third to the internal network(192.168.2.x). I´m using Suse 7.0
and have installed the firewall script and squid proxy server. The squid
runs fine html,ftp works. In the firewall script I have disabled routing
and masquerading. Now I want to ping the internet from my internal
network. But no request gets an answer.

I have set the following options to yes

fw_allow_ping_fw = yes

Referencing to the technical dokumentation these 3 options set to yes
allows the icmp ping to pass the firewall. But it didn´t work :-(
Has anyone an idea?
Thx for any help
