Hi all,

I have
00100 allow ip from any to any via lo0
in my firewall script. But although I get lines like

silakka /kernel: Connection attempt to TCP from

into my messages log. It is jsst like the firewall although blocks local
traffic. What should I add or modify to allow traffic via loopback and/or
from and to ?
