You need to enable custom ruleset by uncommenting
at the very bottom of /etc/rc.config.d/SuSEfirewall2.rc.config

then add the following to your first ruleset fw_custom_before_antispoofing()

iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -s localnet -d external IP -j ACCEPT

for example:
iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -s -d -j ACCEPT

Restart firewall:
/etc/rc.d/SuSEfirewall2_final reload

and you're done.
