Starting Firewall Initialization (phase 2 of 2) SuSEfirewall2: Warning:
ip6tables does not support state matching. Extended IPv6 support disabled.
SuSEfirewall2: Error: unknown parameter name=ssh in
FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT -> 0/0,tcp, 22,,hitcount=3,blockseconds=120,name=ssh

yes, the line is wrong  :^(

FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT="0/0,tcp, 22,,hitcount=3,blockseconds=120,recentname=ssh"

I had that line in there originally and the error message stated that
'recentname' was wrong also so I changed it based upon 'man iptables',
but apparently that also isn't right for susefirewall2 syntax.

That said, I am going to plug that line in using cut and paste and
reboot the machine and pray :)   Thanks for your help....

Prayer is cool, but why a reboot? This isn't windoze, no need. Just tell the firewall to reload, takes a second.
