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?
