This is only the beginning of the script. I wanted to make sure
everything worked before I locked it down, that's all.

The listing of iptables rules looks strange. There is an allow policy
and there are lots of allow rules, but nothing is denied. There are LOG
targets at the end. They will not log anything because the pakets have
already been accepted.

The rule specifications for POSTROUTING chain are probably uneccessary.
I am not shure, because I did not really find out what you are trying to

Maybe it is easier to use the SuSE firewall script to generate the
iptables rules (that is what SuSE firewall does).

In addition to the filter rules it is neccessary to allow the connection
with some /etc/hosts.allow entry.
