Hi Marc!

Thanks a lot for the work you put into SuSEfirewall2. I have one

I know there are some objections against bridging firewalls at all,
but due to our situation here at the university we have to use a

At the moment we are working with 2.2.19 with bridge/ipchains
patches and our own set of rules. But we want to take

and use the firewall scripts, either with 2.2.X or 2.4.X.
