Hi Randy,

many thanks for your support. I am really desperating, I spent almost all
saturday and sunday diging throughout the configuration.

I am using Debian Lenny and I am pretty sure there is no other firewall
running that the arno.
Ofcause I also restart the firewall everytime with the restart command.

Obviously it is not the only port forwarding I setup with
arno-iptables-firewall, the smtp port is also forwarded to an internal host
as you can see in this setting and it works just fine
> OPEN_TCP="25 143 443"
> NAT_FORWARD_TCP="25,143> 443>"

The only difference is that I changed the destination port in the case of
https. The internal host listen on 8543 for https.

Could it be a problem with session on established connection (or something
like that)?

In case of port 25 and 143, I did not need to change anything in the

I can send you both configuration file (custom-rules.conf and firewall.conf)
if it can help you to help me.

I am really under pressure!

many thanks for your help!
