    Router firewall


    I have a suse 10.3 computer running as a router.
    I'm confused about the scope of the router firewall.

    If I open Port 80 (Yast firewall "allowed services") in the router firewall am I:

    1) opening port 80 from the internet to the router machine only, or
    2) opening port 80 from the internet to all the internal zone computers?

    My guess is that the Port is only open to the router computer.
    To open to other internal computers you use "Masquerade"
    in Yast firewall.

    Thanks

    You are right:
    You are opening the router's port 80.

    To get port 80 open to other machines you need ipforwarding.
