Once again thanks for your reply, but I ve got more questions
Up to now I have been using the GUI for sorewall on my system, so I'm not quite sure if the information held in "rules" in shorewall is the same as when I look in "iptables -L" To make things worse I also used once firestarter, and although it is now unistalled, there is still some stuff kicking around.
Is there one place/comand that overrules everything else so I can start with a clean sheet. And where is the IPTABLES file in the system if I wanted to copy/edit/restore. When I look in MAN IPTABLES-RESTORE it refers me to STDIN, where is it ?
Before I list the whole code for iptables here, I will need to edit the order of rules as you suggested. But before I do that I need to do a lot of
Thanks for your patience.
