Desktop with SuSE 9.3 and firewall active. There I have MythTV backend and 
mysql. Running the frontend there works fine.

Laptop wireless (ibmx40) with SuSE 9.3 and firewall active. I installed a second 
front end.

Problem If I stop the firewall in the desktop the frontend in the laptop works 
great. If it is active it can not communicate. Reading the documentation I 
understand I have to open the TCP port 3306 for the mysql and TCP ports 6543 and 

I have been reading about firewall but being new to linux all the changes I have 
done have not effect. I tried to do it graphically with Yast and also tinkering 
with /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.
Any tips?
