Trusting myself! (Firestarter)

Hi All!

I am running some Jini services and a test client on my own machine. On Windows it works nicely and on Linux it works nicely - when I turn off my firewall.

I am using Firestarter 0.9.2.

The thing is, even when I list my own IP as a Trusted Host, my examples don't work and I see plenty of "hits" on my IP (as source) for udp (port 4160) and igmp (no port number listed).

Why are my packets still being blocked even though I have trusted myself? :-/

Any advice would be most appreciated!
