My firewall table rules do allow existing connections, but I guess this test client closes connections and reopens only when needed, so it was stymied and panicked.
maidsafe team – what is a good ip-tables rule or ruleset to use to allow this test and maybe the future network? Or will we in the future just set a general rule like I do for Tor? e.g. :
-A OUTPUT -m owner --uid-owner debian-tor -j ACCEPT
I wonder about this as I’ve never been able to get any torrent client to work with a decent firewall and I suspect the safe network will be more akin to a torrent client than Tor or I2P networks.
