Hi Chris, The net address and subnet mask combination that is 220.127.116.11/3 covers the range 18.104.22.168 to 127.255.255.255.
You are therefore blocking all traffic to the localhost address (127.0.0.0) Now, I'm a networking bloke not an MIS person but I would assume this is BAD as services/apps on your machine would want to use this address. What you need to do is have a rule ahead of this specifying: allow all from any to any via lo0 If you need a tool to help visualising firewall policy I would recommend /usr/ports/security/fwbuilder. It needs a bit of a hack to make NAT work which I've posted previously to this list.
