Dear Sir,
I have setup m0n0 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 internet.

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.and define the specifice port given below

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 (POP3)

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?

Best Regard,
Abdul  Aziz
