Answer:  there are no parameters in the firewall script that will fix
your problem.

your problem is name resolution and the firewall script has nothing to
do with that except to open the port.

on the local node that does not work, ping free-search.homelinux.org
and see what ip address its using.

I suspect its the wrong one.  fix that.  and youll be fine.
