Firewall rejects HTTP request
Hi,

I have SuSE 7.2 running and want to be able to access my (stand-alone)
machine from the internet. Here's what I did:

I set up /etc/rc.config.d/firewall.rc.config with these values, leaving all
others to default:

FW_DEV_WORLD="ippp0"
FW_SERVICES_EXTERNAL_TCP="www"

I then trigger the dial-up process, query my dynamic IP number and point my
web browser to that IP address (the browser is configured to use a proxy so
that the request is actually sent over the net)

However, the request is rejected and /var/log/firewall says:

Dec 13 18:58:12 linux kernel: Packet log: rulchain REJECT ippp0 PROTO=6
145.253.2.237:48135 212.144.144.9:80 L=60 S=0x00 I=11823 F=0x0000 T=56 SYN
(#8)

If I call 'SuSEfirewall stop', everything works fine... any advice on how to
configure the firewall to get this working?

thx
Heiko
