No no, think you mistaken liao lah.

Basically I've block all outgoing for a specific IP say 192.168.0.1 , however, I want that IP able to logon to MSN. So one would "Allow 192.168.0.1 TCP 1863 <messenger logon ip> " that would work but somehow it doesnt.

I guess the deny all is more important then allow. So I've work the other way wrong. Now only blocking port 80 outgoing so basically cannot surf web lah, except to update.windows.com.

BTW, I've got the requirement from f8 liao, can you also send me your requirements for the motec?

Cheers

you using proxy to control firewall ?

basically this what i do.
those allowed to surf net.
route them thru proxy server .
from the block all the neccesary access and word

those higher level user ( manager or CEO )
point them direct to router . bypass the proxy server
to free to surf all even xxx ( who care since higher level staff )
just tell them you have allow them to bypass the server to allow
more easier access to internet
proxy server sometime very ma fan la when come to word filtering
just control the lower staff level usage only
higher level buat apa nak kacau them

i have same issue last time when configuring the Lotus program to bypass the port.
fed up.. point direct much better and hassle free

my requirement ?
i email u now
