We are using shorewall on Linux server in our LAN environment. The Client machines using windows XP.
When I try to connect to a remote machine( The remote machine has static IP) from my windows XP machine , the shorewall which drops the static IP. I wrote exception on shorewall rules, even though the shorewall drops the IP. Please see following log message:
Apr 28 16:13:46 system1 kernel: Shorewall:all2all:DROP:IN=eth1 OUT=eth0 SRC=192.168.21.12 DST=<Static IP> LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=62316 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=1822 DPT=1723 WINDOW=65535 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
The exception rule which I wrote on shorewall:
ACCEPT :info loc fw tcp 1723
What am I doing wrong?
