Setting up firewall


Hello,
I have finally connected my Mandrake 90 to the Internet. I can now use email, ftp etc...

Now the question: how important is it to have the firewall?

I set it up, but my email clients, web browsers etc stop working.

It seems as I have to tell the firewall what to allow and what to deny, but I have not succeeded so far.

Any help to a newbie?

Thanks,
dimitri

I installed a GuardDog. It was very easy.
