[Shorewall-newbies] First line "ACCEPT from anywhere to anywhere" OK?

I also wondered about that line.

But as far as I can tell, it is the local (lo) network on the firewall. It
must be able to accept anything for communication between processes running
on the firewall itself.

It's really very confusing, but that's the way iptables lists the chains.
