    Firewall


    Hi all. Im trying to communicate with other machines on my network, but i think the firewall is blocking it because they need to communicate with my laptop. Im running Fedora 7 so SELinux is up(i think all distros have that now) How can i allow my local lan IP access my laptop with no problems? All i want to do is be able to talk to other nodes on my network. Thanx in advance!

    Have you already run:
    Code:
    system-config-securitylevel
    ...and used it to open the ports you need?

    Yeah thats exactly what i've done, i cant figure out how to make all my LAN IP's exempt from blockage. I did notice the custom rules. but i dont know how to make one let alone what it looks like, i've been searching for an example but i dont know how to search for something like this. Anyone got any ideas?
