Qubes uses NAT, so sys-net sees all traffic coming from the IP address of sys-firewall. If you new fw has IP - 10.137.0.200 And target is 188.8.131.52 `nft insert rule filter FORWARD index 1 ip saddr 10.137.0.200 ip daddr 184.108.40.206 tcp dport https accept` `nft insert rule filter FORWARD index 2 ip saddr 10.137.0.200 drop` Would do it.

You can always access immediate neighbours, but will have to adjust the default firewall rules.

Explained on that page: most useful is file exchange with no Qubes tools installed, but also for testing network code, new pgp or ssh keys, etc. > > All the best > Michael > -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
