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 do.

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.
