Dear sir,

I have setup m0n0 Wall and to access the internet I
have the following rule.

LAN interface

Proto    Source    Port      Destination    Port
TCP/UDP  LAN net    *          *             *

This rule (above) works and allows me access to the

Now I want to make the LAN secure and only allow DNS,
HTTP and POP access from the LAN to the WAN. So I
delete the above rule and add the following rules.

Proto    Source    Port       Destination    Port

TCP/UDP  LAN net  53 (DNS)      *           53 (DNS)
TCP      LAN net  80 (HTTP)     *            80 (HTTP)
TCP      LAN net  110 (POP3)    *            110

If I only have these 3 rules then I cannot access the
internet (no Http access, no DNS, no POP access).

What is the mistake I am making? Can someone give me a
set of rules for simple access to the internet for a
small office please?
