Allowing application through SUSE Firewall

I’m not sure how to do this, or if this is the right forum, but when I try to access some sites (Tomcat Documentation site), I got a notification through the Iron Linux browser that the site was blocked and that I should allow this program access through the Suse Firewall. How would I do this? It seemed odd that a safe site as this was blocked.

The SUSE firewall does not, by default, block outgoing traffic. The
message is not relevant to your machine (or should not be unless you
have tweaked something) but may be relevant for your location (school,
work, cafe) though that sounds like a pretty poor configuration of
something blocking something else based on the content.

Good luck.

Actually this happened at home. I have no sophisticated firewall rules on the router’s firewall that would block any content. When I turned the SUSE Firewall off, then I was able to access the site. This seemed crazy to me because this was the Tomcat 6.0 official Documentation site. I’ll have to see if this continues. I didn’t have trouble with any other sites I went to.

Basically I am running two firewalls – hardware firewall on the router and the software firewall SUSE Firewall.

Well let’s see your firewall rules then; post the output from the
following command:

sudo /usr/sbin/iptables-save

Good luck.

That is very strange. However, you can see in your firewall log which port
the site is trying to connect to.

Apparently this was just a hiccup of some sort because it’s not happening anymore.

That said, where can I find good documentation about the Suse Firewall? Man pages?
