SuSE 9.2 firewall


Is there some sort of built in firewall on SuSE 9.2 that could be blocking access to my machine ? The proper ports are forwarded through my router... and everything else seems in order... but I am still getting blocked.

Are you trying to do what? SSH in? FTP in?

The firewall IS installed by default on 9.2+ and blocks most ports from getting in. I often to a test at http://scan.sygate.com to see what could get in. You could do as the previous poster said, and edit your setting in Yast.

I, for example, have all but port 21 blocked. I leave that open to run FTP and grab files from home while I'm at work.

Aslo, if you want to do a VNC or RDC connection to your desktop, you've got to set that up - I believe it is under K/System Tools/Remote Desktop Connection.

HTH!!

For SuSe 9.1 & 9.2 you mite try Firestarter (google/linux), the built-in firewall is OK, not great. 9.3 has a very good built- in firewall.
