Sorry for my poor english ...

fw-1 is a module that sits beetwen the IP layer & the interface (Well. I think it perform like this. Mayne I'm totally wrong here)

So even if I can ping 127.0.0.1, Maybe it blocks acces to lo for some other programs.

As the firewall as been installed by a 3rd party - And not very well installed, because there are LOTS of daemons still there - I can't say...
