    I have stopped and restarted this thing many times in trying to sort
    this out. That alleviates one response. I haven't run SuSEconfig in any
    of this, so that should rule out the /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 script
    getting rewritten on the fly.

    I use the following two rules in FW_FORWARD to get NFS passed between my
    DMZ and my internal network:,,udp,1:65535,,udp,800

    The interesting thing to me is that the only thing that I keep getting
    FW-ACCEPT messages for are the responses from port 800 in my DMZ back to
    my internal network. They always look like this:

    Sep 13 17:21:39 reliant kernel: SuSE-FW-ACCEPT IN=eth1 OUT=eth0
    SRC= DST= LEN=148 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=63
    ID=30811 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=2049 DPT=800 LEN=128

    My guess is that this has something to do with the fact that it's UDP
    traffic, or that it's a low port, but I also have this rule for printing
    from Samba:,,udp,137

    And I never get any messages about that one. I also do NOT get the
    messages when I access the NFS share from the firewall. This is being
    taken care of here:

    FW_SERVICES_DMZ_UDP="domain 600:1023"

    Again, anyone know why I'd get those messages for that one rule, and not
    the others? Perhaps I should send this to the maintainer of
