Hello Vadim,

first, thank you for your tip; It's working :-)

OK, this track is about:

fwbuilder doesn't recognize broadcast adresses'
separability.
Right now, code is being put in FORWARD chain if
destination object
consists of a broadcast adress.

Would be fine if you are able to generate code in INPUT
chain,
You then, for example, are able to explicitly ignore
broadcast traffic
without having the need to open your firewall for
certain adresses
(if you don't want this packets being logged).

bye

Olaf
