Firestarter denying connections on ports 80 & 443 despite settings.

Hi Team,

My firestarter is denying connections on ports 80 and 443, despite the fact that I have set rules to allow both the services, and indeed any connection from my gateway (the source of the connections).

Can someone please advise why this might be?

I can surf the 'net fine, unfortunately I cannot load facebook, gmail, or another couple of sites that require logins, and I assume this is due to HTTPS not communicating properly.

(On the off chance anyone can answer these real quick, I'm also trying to solve my resolution resetting every time I restart, and one of the icons in my KDE panel turning into a widget from an icon every time I restart. Still working on these, but just if anyone knows already).

Thanks in advance,

Core2Duo E8400

Whoops, I disabled ICMP filtering, and it seems to have fixed the problem.
Guess there's a certain type of ICMP that these sites require to work... weird. Would prefer to have it disabled.

Anywhoo, thanks for the help, guys! :-)
