 Subject:  newbie opening ports
 Date:  Tue, 29 Nov 2005 22:55:48 -0500
i just recently learned about m0n0wall and have it running on my lan now.  I
am having trouble opening ports for the local lan to use.  for instance i
have a gentoo server i need ssh access to and  cant seem to open it up and i
also have a windows box that needs access to the bittorrent/emule/mirc
ports.
under firewall and rules i have the proto which is tcp, source i have tried
"wan address" and "any" with the same effect, i have assigned the port and
the destination i have set both "lan network" and the actual lan address of
the machine with the same no effect.  am i doing something wrong here?  also
is it possible to open up those ports for the entire network? say if all the
machines wanted to download bittorrents they would be able to etc?

thanks for any help. this seems like a great firewall, i just need to learn
how to administer it.
