IpCop Port Forwarding Trouble - help needed

    After reading the "Perfect firewall" artical, I installed, setup and tested ipcop.

    My setup is:

    IPcop (configured as green/red/orange) [I am only using the g&r now - after testing I was going to move the servers into the orange dmz zone]

    I setup port forwarding for http/ftp/etc and testing from my workstation on the network. All worked fine.

    However I later discovered that the port forwarding was ONLY working from traffic originating on the green card (internal). I verified the settings and made sure external access was set to *all*.

    I then thought that maybe the firewall would not allow forwarding from red the green, but the ipcop documentation shows that the is allowed.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this just not possible?

    Thanks for any help~

    If you're sure that you've configured the right settings in the IPCop web interface, I'd ask your ISP if they maybe block the ports you need (e.g. http, ftp).
