I forward this message supposing it may be a bug.
-------- Original Message --------
I get a strange behavior of the colinux netfilter firewall on colinux
0.6.1 with a Mandrake 9.0 clone run under Windows XP SP2. Despite of the
facts that I :
- flush the filter table (originally full of security checks) and allow
all traffic by default (input, output and forward) on the colinux side,
- and that I disable the firewall on the windows side,
I cannot ping colinux from the windows side, even if I can do it from
the colinux side. Similarly other traffic gets blocked. The original
behavior of the firewall does not seem to be affected by the change of
the filter table !
I am not able to understand this behavior. Is it a bug or an
incompatibility ? What is wrong ? Has anyone meet this problem and have
an explanation ? I would greatly appreciate some workaround.
