Re: [suse-security] Firewall rejects HTTP request
I believe that you need to setup:

In the fw_custom_before_antispoofing section add:

iptables -A INPUT -i <external facing interface> -s <internal local network> -d <external IP
address> -j ACCEPT

Then you will need to change the firewall2.rc.config to read the custom file. This is near
the end of the file.

The problem with this for you is that the IP addresses are hard coded. I am sorry, I do not
have the time to research how to do this with a dynamic IP, I would assume that many
here know what to do.

SuSEfirewall normally blocks access to the external interface from the internal network
(including the server which is considered part of the local network).

Hope this gives you a start.
