[Shorewall-users] Portforwarding didn't work

I noticed the same behavior (no logfile entry) when I defined my lan zone in
the hosts file.  A linux box trying to get dhcp info from the server running
on my firewall box would simply time out with no reply from the server and
no log showing it had even tried.  I removed the definition in the hosts
file and it works fine.  A windows system would succeed though, since they
apparently cache their last successful ip address (established before I
installed shorewall).  This probably doesn't help you, but I thought I would
mention it.

Sincerely,
Jim Hubbard
