Hmmm.. I thought I combed through the docs already. Guess I missed something

My Rules
accept	loc	fw	icmp	8
accept	fw	loc	icmp	8

accept	net	fw	icmp	8
accept	fw	net	icmp	8

accept	fw	dsl	icmp	8
accept	dsl	fw	icmp	8

So... I don't have a loc->net but like last night, I did a ping from the fw
(my laptop) to the dsl (internet).. I can see the ping go out but it gets
dropped as it comes back in.

I already have the rule about accept dsl->fw... ???

Any help is better than none... and thanks for welcoming me.. (I didn't know
that masq was simple as shorewall)

Though it's quite a read.

Good on your Mr. Tom Eastep
