Either use yast to update the firewall rules or update /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 with your favorite editor (lot's of detailed comments in the file for every FW statement).

Hi,

i need more explanation.after i enabled the firewall the /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward sets to 0.because of that i can't access the LAN behind the VPN server.

Why didn't you look into /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2?

Search for FW_ROUTE and read the comments.
