Yes. If I turn the firewall off, it works just fine.
Please note though, that I do not have a DNS server running
on my machine.

Thanks for your time!!
I am really looking forward to your reply!

Does DNS work when firewall is turned off?

Hi all,

I was using SuSE7.2 untill recently when I changed my Hard Drive
and I installed 8.1.
This PC is a Samba/Gateway machine for 3 others (running Win9X).
The problem is that although I kept all the ports and parameters that
the old firwall used to run and retyped them in the new SuSEFirewall2
edition, the direct masquerading that used to work, doesn't any more.
I have made sure that I have configured the Network Card with
enabling the IP Forwarding.
When I enter them and enable the firewall (rcSuSEfireall2 start
at prompt) all looks to work including Samba and DHCP.
However when I type wvdial to enter the internet, wvdial replies
with something like DNS not working and , cannot resolve DNS etc (
my apologies I am not at the machine right now).

Can someone please give me a hand with this? The installation
of SuSE8.1 is out of the box.

Thanx friends.
