 Subject:  Enemy Territory game server behind monowall, NAT & Firewall Rule.
 Date:  Tue, 02 Nov 2004 16:09:27 -0500
I have really tried reading all the docs available on line as well as 
searching through all of the mailing list archives using the search 
function. If anyone can point out what I am doing wrong, I would really 
appreciate it.

Simply, I am trying to run an Enemy Territory dedicated server (on a 
debian box) behind monowall. I need to have port 27960 open so that 
friends on the Internet can join.
 From what I understand so far, I need to use the NAT inbound rule to 
accomplish this, so I did this:

Click on NAT, then Inbound
click plus for new rule
external port range is set to 27960
NAT IP is set to the debian box,
local port 27960
interface is WAN
external address=interface address
and click the box to set the firewall rule
protocol is set to tcp (though i did try tcp/udp and udp with no luck)

click save, then apply changes.

firewall rule options:
Source port range=any and any
Destination: TypeSingle host or alias
Fragments and Logs= unchecked

I have used NAT inbound to setup a rule for gtk-gnutella, and that works 
just fine, the setting almost identical as the server rule I'm trying to 
get working.

When the server is started, it show up on the local lan, and I am able 
to join and play without any problems. The server is not seen on the
 Internet, and several people have tried connecting vi ip address and 
were unable to do so.

Any comments would be appreciated.
