Thanks for the good suggestions Togan, on how to improve SuSEFirewall2!
Much appreciated.

I made the changes you suggested, then restarted the firewall, and tried
to ping devices on my external network, from inside my internal network.
No joy. I did a tail -f /var/log/firewall and post the output to

There is nothing related to ping in the logs you put up there

but I don't think much of relevance really got logged. Perhaps you will
see something I don't.. I can try an do it a few more time, the output
is different each time and I suspect mostly from other systems on my
internal network communicating with the internet.

Please provide the output of
ip a sh
ip ro sh

and logs of the firewall when pinging
grep -i icmp /var/log/firewall
