Suse 9.0 still refusing connections after shorewall clear and iptables -F

Hi, I am trying to run a few services on a SUSE 9.0 machine (on a private LAN), such as webmin on 10000 and XServer on port 6000. At first I tried to use the SUSE firewall to no longer disable connections. Unfortunately, nmap still showed all ports to be closed. After giving up, I uninstalled the SUSE firewall and installed Shorewall.

After running 'shorewall clear', nmap showed the desired ports to be opened. However, connecting to them is still not possible.

I have also tried iptables -F (as root), but this did not get me any further either.

Does anybody know how to get rid of SuSe's apparent extra restrictions, so I can just use ShoreWall?
