my complaint ("not easy") refers mainly to Ch 21.4 Basic Networking in
the SuSE documentation. It's really too long and complicated to set up
a simple LAN, and it asks to enter IP addresses but never mentions
ifconfig or ip commands to find them.

It's easy, isn't it?
No. Kenneth on this list learned me about the command ip a which is
not mentioned in O'Reilly's Nutshell or the SuSE manual. Ch 21,
Basic Networking in the Reference documentation should include info
about how to find unknown IP addresses of computers in a LAN.
well, Kenneth's command works but I think, the more usual command for

That is ok, if your internet router acts as a firewall for your

At least something is giving you the 192.168.x.x ip Adresses. If they
come from your Speedtouch and it converts them to "real" Internet
Adresses, this acts in fact as a router.
If you feel better enabling the firewall on fam, you need to
allow ssh traffic on port 22 as has already been said in another
mail. You can do that easily with yast on machine fam.
No. I can't find it in YaST2 / Security and Users / Firewall.
Yes, you can: ;-)

Don't understand. I use fish (or sftp, not ssh) to transport files in
the LAN which I suppose is in Internal, not External Zone. Port 22 is
never mentioned in these zones.
I'd like to put the firewall between the LAN and the Internet.
Currently I pull out the phone line from the router when I disable a

I use SuSE Linux since vs 8.2 and explore other distros on 3 other
partitions, but SuSE is my favorite.
