Re: [suse-security] Ipchains Issue
Thanks Stefan,

Is the same thing happening when I connect? If I'm allowing my host say, to connect (speficied in the input rule) and the "deny the rest"
command set, it takes about 30 seconds-1 minute for me to connect. Once I'm
connected there's no problem. I checked the man pages and there's no option
(if in fact it's also doing lookups on a connect). Any ideas?

yes you are right. Just do ipchains -L -n to avoid reverse lookups.
