Reply To: Losing connection


Ok i am using firestarter for the firewall.

I have added the following to the user defined section of the firewall:

$IPT -A INPUT -s -d 0/0 -j ACCEPT
$IPT -A INPUT -s 0/0 -d -j ACCEPT
$IPT -A OUTPUT -s -d 0/0 -j ACCEPT
$IPT -A OUTPUT -s 0/0 -d -j ACCEPT

These are pre applied when the firewall starts up, so they are on top of the input and output chains.

Correct me if I am wrong but that should all all multicast both in and out of both networks?

I have found that this problem reproduces itself within an hour and fifteen minutes so i still have 45 minutes to wait to see if this fixes it. Will let you know.
