? about Mandrake shorewall , drakfirewall

Does anyone know anything about setting up the
shorewall , drakfirewall. I have made an attempt, and
seem to have made an error, as now I can't even browse
the Internet.
By the way, thanks to all for the help with the modem.
Although, I finally worked around the problem, by
trading in my, internal modem, for an external modem,
thanks to a response from ugol, off the
linuxquestions board.

thanks in advance of any advice,

Oh, I just installed the shorewall firewall package from the KDE control center and tried to use the GUI to set it up. I've tried a variety of settings on the drakefirewall GUI, for security, and can't seem to get anything now, to allow me to surf the net. Even if I allow all ports etc.

thanks for your input and consideration.
