 Subject:  LAN rule problem (LAN -> WAN)
 Date:  Mon, 31 Oct 2005 17:17:36 +0100
Hello everyone!

straight forward to my problem.
Actually an easy setup:

I have several PCs in my LAN (all static IPs) and I want only a few 
to be able to acces the internet (WAN).
For testing only one PC should be able to do that.
I have created the following rules in my LAN rule-set:

ALLOW	*	LAN address	*	->	LAN address	*
ALLOW	*	PC1 		* 	->	WAN address	*
DENY		*	LAN address	*	->	*		*

but PC1 is NOT able to access the net.

If I change the second rule to:
ALLOW	*	PC1 		* 	->	*	*

everything is fine! PC1 is able to access the net.
Which I do not understand.
Any help?
