Hi All,
  I had had a go at getting shorewall running on my system (RH 7.1, kern =
2.4.16), and have looked at the faq and documentation etc. But I cant =
seem to find out what Ive done wrong here.

  I used to use an iptables script (monmothas) and now want to move to =
shorewall...

  My sytem set is firewall machine connected to the internet via adsl on =
ppp0, local network on eth0 (10.1.0.0/8)

  I have used the latest sample files - two-interfaces setup, and =
changed the local ip address to represent my network.

  The problem I have so far, is that now when using outlook on the local =
network, it takes about 1 minute to connect to the pop3 server for my =
email...if i clean the iptables out, stop shorewall, and load my old =
monmotha script..im back to whoosh pickup.

  But, I can use the web browser from the local network with no =
problems..

  Probably being dumb, I know..but can anyone help ?


  Thanks for any help=20

 I havn't posted my configs here, dont want to spam the list :)

  Rgds

  Andy
