Rules process in top down order. Make sure your block rule is above your
pass all rule.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Firewall Rules Problem
I am fairly new to M0n0wall and have looked in the docs for this
information. I cannot get my configuration to work on the Lan Firewall
First, I am now upgraded to 1.2 stable.
Next, the problem. I have clients on the network that I do not want
access to port 25 traffic through to the Internet. I have added a
simple block rule and it does not seem to work. I can still telnet out
on port 25. So I figured it was the broad allow rule that was causing
the problem and I removed the Default Allow Rule in favor of several
rules specifying which protocols the LAN is allowed to pass. Well,
after doing this I lost all ability to browse the web even though I had
an HTTP allow rule. What is going on with this firewall configuration?
