Ahh.., that's got to be it.., I'll have a look at my ipfw ruleset and
see if there's something can be tweaked..,

For what its worth, here are the relevant statements that previously
worked with my PIPEX adsl connection:

$fwcmd add 00640 allow tcp from any to any out via $oif setup keep-state
uid root
$fwcmd add 00641 allow tcp from any to any in via $oif setup keep-state
uid root
$fwcmd add 00642 allow udp from me to any 33435-33500 out via $oif
keep-state
$fwcmd add 00643 allow icmp from any to me icmptype 3,11 in via $oif
limit src-addr 2
 
# Allow out ping function
$fwcmd add 00650 allow icmp from any to any out via $oif keep-state

And here's all the icmp-related statements:

$ grep -i icmp /etc/firewall/fwrules
$fwcmd add 00643 allow icmp from any to me icmptype 3,11 in via $oif
limit src-addr 2
$fwcmd add 00650 allow icmp from any to any out via $oif keep-state
$fwcmd add 00860 deny log icmp from any to me icmptype 0,8 in via $oif
$

These worked fine before.., Can't imagine why they wouldn't be okay now.

Thanks again for the info, Frank.., That's another one of those
things...,

Regards,

Stacey
