    Unhappy OpenSuse Firewall option

    Hi

    I've been trying to place a firewall on my Suse and failed

    1. Tried OpenSuse 11 but in Yast there is no option for Firewall and if I try to install the modules it simply fails to connect to download.opensuse.org (thought ping is working)

    2. Tried OpenSuse 10.3 but (which has firewall modules in Yast) if I activate the firewall (with SSH/port 22 made available) the next time I need to connect to the account fails - is like port never really got open.

    Any suggestion as how I might be able to have a decent firewall greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Alex

    Alex,

    I'd recommend taking a look at APF: http://susewiki.org/index.php?title=Installing_APF

    It's very popular with our user base.
