Re: iptables and X (KDE)

Hash: SHA1

Ran into this one a few weeks ago
KDE & some of it's component subsystems seem to 
use connections via the localhost interface
I used the following to allow all and any traffic on lo: 

/sbin/iptables -A OUTPUT -o lo -j ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
