Although my firewall computer can do so just fine. On the external

network and the internet. It too is set up to do NAT translations and
has a simplified firewall, could it somehow be the cause of why my
internal network cannot reach devices on my external network? That seems
odd to me but then I don't claim to fully understand the way networks
work. What am I missing?
Either paste the output of the following to and send the
paste id or send it to the list

grep -v ^# /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2|sed /^$/d
