I got rid of those firewall rules (and now, no more unclean packets in the logs). I will have to do a little reading on patching the kernel. What confused me was that the patch was imbedded in the email. I didn't know what part to get out to put in a file, nor what/how to call it. For now I think I will wait for the next kernel version and just compile a new one. Thanks. Mark.
