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 > HTH, > Frank -- Stacey Roberts B.Sc (HONS) Computer Science Web: www.vickiandstacey.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
