I have my linux box on a network of suns on eth0, I have a ppp
connection to the internet. I configured output to default policy of
accept, and input policy to deny. I set input to accept from the
localnet/24 on eth0, this works fine, and to my_provider/24, and that
works fine, as well as a couple of other machines out there I want to
have access to my machine.

Here's the problem, I set this:

ipfwadm -I -a acc -b -W ppp0 -P tcp -S 80 -D 80
ipfwadm -I -a acc -b -W ppp0 -P udp -S 80 -D 80

now ipfwadm -I -l says:
acc tcp anywhere anywhere www -> www
acc udp anywhere anywhere www -> www

And yet I can't get my browser to work, why??? A side note, I also
tried accepting on port 53, just to check to see if it was a nameserver
problem in netscape. Thanks in advance for you help.
