    Default Fwd: IPF Firewall Rules... help!

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks, I have read the handbook and a couple of other articles. I
    have attached my ipf and ipnat rule lists. Please advise on the
    commented out Bit torrent sections. The windows clients want to run
    Limewire.

    WRT the LAN environment, we have a couple of Windows XP SP2 clients,
    and the freeBSD gateway. The external connection from the gateway runs
    upstairs into the block's router, which is connected to an ADSL router
    (no static IP).

    Thanks for your help!

    If you read the limewire website carefully you will see that no
    where does it say it will work on PC on a local area network (LAN).
    This is one of those products that buries the sending IP address in
    the packets. A PC on the LAN uses an NATed ip address and this
    product can not handle that. This is a common problem with products
    such as this. This is not an firewall problem. It's a design error
    in the products internet communications exchange of session packets.
    It's just not designed to work on PC that is on a LAN.

    To use this product your XP box has to be connected to the internet
    with a real public IP address. IE: not be on a LAN using NATed IP
    address.

    For your INFO attaching files is a bad thing to do. That is how
    virus get passed around and many people here on this list will not
    open them. Next time just post file content into body of your email
    post.
