ICQ it's a risk inside a network. A way to avoid this risk and allow the
chat, U can use a web-proxy in order to send the messages by a HTTP tunnel.
ICQ can do this, and IMHO it's a bit more secure.

To allow NTP, you just need to define the IP for Ur NTP server and allow UDP
input/output to their 123 port against a non-privileged port in your server
(over 1024)

I have a single system protected by SuSEfirewall2. I do not use
personal firewall because I want to allow chrony to set the time,
and for this I need access to offsite NTP servers.

How do I allow use of ICQ?

Thank you.
