Hi. I am a New m0n0wall user. I just set it up Saturday.

I am trying to setup Netmeeting capability on a "generic-pc-cdrom" version
1.0 built on Feb 15, 2004 m0n0wall. For the inbound, from the WAN, I have
set the following parameters in the webGUI:

Pass	WAN	TCP	ANY	*	192.168.1.31	1720	Allow Frag packets

Background info: My ISP has given me a bank of WAN IPs to use so I am
doing 1:1 NAT. My Win2K PC has a LAN static IP (specified on the DHCP
page) and a corresponding WAN IP (specified on the Firewall:NAT page on
the 1:1 tab).

When I run a port scan from GRC's Shields Up site
(http://grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2), it says the 1720 port is not stealth,
but closed. Why is this port closed when I setup the above rule to open
it? Is there a Default HIDDEN rule that blocks everything coming in on the
WAN or do I have to create one and put it at the bottom of the WAN rules
list (which I have tried)?

Also, I am a little (read: alot) confused about the "/32" stuff at the end
of the IP field. I know this is how I can specify a range of IPs but I
haven't been able to find any documentation or the proper search term to
educate myself. Any direction there would be fabulous as well.

Now all this may well be explained in the archives but I could not find it
so thanks in advance for your patience and any answers provided.
