The application is IBM Tivoli backup client.  The TSM server 'pings' the
node then the node talks back and starts performing its backup.  At first
I had the rule set to 'LAN net' instead of 'Network' with physically
typing in the address. One machine [machine A] wasnt working properly. So
then I
changed it to 'Network' and typed in the addresses and the previous one
[machine A] started working but now this one [machine B] doesnt want to. 
Thats what it is confusing to me.  I see one connection in the firewall
state table but then I see a few packets getting blocked, so I'm not sure.

Even if it is a broken application, what would you suggest to get this
working? Allow all traffic bidirectional? Because even if the application
does crappy TCP, the machines still have to perform their backups and
m0n0wall isnt allowing that via the sysadmin's eyes who run the boxes.
