AW: AW: AW: [suse-security] SuSEfirewall2 blocks SMB traffic

i'm having problems to discover a deepers sense in this setup...
why do you set up a firewall that is not between the inet and
your only internal computer?

i would consider putting 2 nic's in the firewall machine and
make it the only computer connected to your router

if both computers are connected to the router only the machin where
the firewall is running is protected from the internet. the other one
has an connection to the router and the inet without a firewall.

or am i completly misunderstanding your setup?

you have services on your firewall machine that you access from the other
machine or what?
you can ping the firewall computer from the other one?

best regards
