Never used Suse but try this:

Edit the global configuration file /etc/rc.config and change the following lines from "no" to "yes":

START_FW="yes"
START_SCANLOGD="yes"
This starts Scanlogd and the SuSE firewall on boot.

Now continue with the configuration of the local firewall file /etc/rc.config.d/firewal l.rc.config (a detailed description of the individual variables is included in the file):
