UDP ports

I'm a linux newbie. I'm using Suse 9.3.
How do I allow connections on udp ports? I tried through yast but I can't set a whole interval of ports. How do I do that?

Thank you very much.

Check out iptables. Here are some rules:

# allow udp traffic on port 100
iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -p udp --dport 100 -j ACCEPT
# allow udp traffic on port 1-10000 from
iptables -A INPUT -s -p udp --dport 1:10000 -j ACCEPT
# allow udp traffic on all ports for everyone
iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -p udp --dport 1:65535 -j ACCEPT
man iptables should give you more info. rtfm.
