Hi GertJan, hi list,

actually I have no firewall installed yet, because this will be done

Anyway, I took a first look, but couldn't find anything helpful there.
If I missed something, please tell.

You also could take a look at SuSEfirewall2, you can find it here:
Even if you want to built your own firewall you can use it as an example.
