I run the same version you do, and long since have found that
Shorewall is vastly easier to set up and understand, and far more
And restarting shorewall is as easy as "shorewall restart".

In my humble opinion... <dons combat helmet>...
Suse should just build Shorewall into their distro and put their firewall
man-hours to better use.
No I Don't Yahoo!
And I'm getting pretty sick of being asked if I do.
