Hello,comprookie2000

First thanks for your time with my problem
now i would like to ask you.

should i use that file i am asking because

1) at the site it's this here

SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for x86

but i am using Suse Linux 9.0 Pro ????

&

2) the md5 for there file is this here
internal MD5: 2215e927f70e342394ec72214803ce0a


but when i do a md5sum i get this here
66f310eee498958f83e223845b776746 popt-1.7-76.i586.rpm

now sorry i am not trying to be out of line here
but i am a newbie & don't want to do something
so dumb that i would need to reinstall Suse

oh & yes i have this installed

popt-1.7.70.i586.rpm

Looks like you allready have it.See what happens when you try to open it like this;
Code:
su
password
cd
firestarter
Also is this the rpm you installed?

Do you use gnome,firestarter is mainly for gnome,guarddog is for kde.If its not going to work I would uninstall it,try guarddog,or you can use iptables.
