If FW_PROTECT_FROM_INTERNAL is "no", you do not need anything for
FW_SERVICES_INTERNAL_TCP. If "yes" then you need to specify _everything_
you want to allow to connect internally to the firewall (or at least low
ports or ports that are otherwise blocked).
Sounds like you either have ping disabled on your firewall or a routing
problem on your internal boxes (do they have at least a host route to
192.168.1.1, along with it as default gw?).

I am having serious problems (and am very new to Linux) and I was hoping
someone could help me.
My Linux machine is attached to a DSL (Linksys 4 port ) router. Suse Linux
7.2 is freshly installed, no modifications.
When I set the router to act as a DHCP, everything works great. The Linux
machine can access the web, and other computers on the network. However the
Linux machine MUST use a static IP (as the router will have to forward HTTP
commands, and can only forward ports if DHCP is NOT enabled)
So, I set the router DHCP function to off.
I go to the KDE control center, and select Network/Basic: LAN
From there I select the Ethernet card (eth0) and edit it. I type in the
static IP address and the Netmask (the IP address is not being used by
I save and restart.
While the Linux machine can still see other computers on the network, it can
no longer access the internet.
Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? Using DHCP on the Router and Linux
box and I get internet fine, but switch to static IP and I loose internet.
