Flocking from my other submit nodes (including non Linux) is fine as they
are not running Suse Firewall. Therefore I know the other pools are OK and
my pool is fine in other respects.

All this is fine as the config is simply cloned from other nodes where it
has been working for a long time. As soon as I turn the firewall off all
is 100% Ok so I believe it is Suse Firewall and nothing else.

The problem is Suse Firewall has its own macro language in the script
/etc/sysconfig/SuSEFirewall2 which generates yards of iptables commands,
which I in turn find hard to read. When we generated our own simple
iptables firewall (not a very strong one I think) by hand we were fine. I
was able to insert lines and understood (to an extent) what I was doing.
Now I am overwhelmed by the very complex rules generated by the script.

It is specifcally how to make the Suse Firewall2 script work that I am
after as I know what I want to do but cannot get it to work with this. As
I said I did try inserting iptables rules but somewhere I have something
wrong :-(

I am sure someone must have done it!
