I have been experiencing slow browsing recently, just wondered if you could take a look at my FORWARD rule and see if it needs any tweaking/extra bits adding for good routing....

iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o eth1 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i eth1 -o eth0 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -j LOG
iptables -A FORWARD -j REJECT

I have something similar for INPUT (although at the mo its just ACCEPTING, since im trying to determine why my web pages are hanging half way, and taking a while to start loading.. even without any ntl proxies enabled.. they have been turned off!)

i am running a PII 400Mhz box with 384MB RAM

Cheers for any advice

I'm not an expert on Firewalls by any means so I cannot really help you specifically. I just wondered though if you had changed anything recently, the only thing I can suggest is go back through your changes step by step. Failing that start again step by step tweaking it a bit more until you get it right. Unfortunately that was how I managed it unless someone else can spot something you have done wrong.
