Yeah, I had tried that too, I have created the rules to allow these 
ports on the WAN
UDP 	* 	* 	* 	1200 	Allow UDP 1200 

UDP 	* 	* 	* 	27000 - 27015 	Allow UDP 27000 to 27015 

	TCP 	* 	* 	* 	27020 - 27039 	Allow TCP 27020 to 27039 

TCP 	* 	* 	* 	27040 - 27041 	Allow TCP 27040 and 27041 

These are applied as the first rules on the WAN interface

When I try to connect to the steam server I see this in the Firewall
22:09:05.007402 	WAN <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?if=WAN> <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?sp=> 
<http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?dp=> 	UDP 

22:09:01.951059 	WAN <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?if=WAN> <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?sp=> 
<http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?dp=> 	UDP 

22:08:58.890187 	WAN <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?if=WAN> <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?sp=> 
<http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?dp=> 	UDP 

22:08:52.964336 	WAN <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?if=WAN> <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?sp=> 
<http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?dp=> 	UDP 

22:08:49.807124 	WAN <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?if=WAN> <http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?sp=> 
<http://mono/diag_logs_filter.php?dp=> 	UDP 

Etc, etc, etc
All these entries show they are blocked.  If I shut off the option to 
show packets blocked by the default rule I don't see these.

Did I apply these rules in the wrong place or something?
